The Indian batsmen are currently struggling in the first Test against New Zealand in Kanpur. In reality, we're saying this because the majority of Indian batters appear to be suffering, despite the fact that the match was a tremendous success for a batsman in the interim. Yes, Shreyas Iyer is the player's name. Let me inform you that Shreyas Iyer has made his Test debut in this match, and he has entered an exclusive club with his superb batting. Let me inform you that Shreyas Iyer made history by being the 16th Indian batsman to make a century on debut in the opening innings of the match.
Furthermore, Shreyas Iyer struck again in the second innings, scoring a half-century. You might be astonished to learn that no Indian batsman has yet to make a century or a half-century in a Test match. In the second innings, Shreyas scored 65 runs. As a result, he is only the third Indian batsman in history to score more than 50 runs in both innings in his first Test match. Let me tell you that it was Dilawar Hussain who did it initially for the Indian cricket team in Kolkata versus England. In the match played in 1933-34, Dilawar scored 59 runs in the first innings and 57 runs in the second.
Sunil Gavaskar is just the second batsman in Test history to score 50 or more in both innings in his first match. Thisaran Parera has been added to the list. He is, however, a step ahead of them both, having struck a century in the first innings. He is the first Indian to make a century in the first innings of a Test match and more than 50 in the second. Iyer is ranked 10th in this category overall.
