Shreyas Iyer upbeat after notching up a century since returning from injury
Speaking to reporters after the game, Iyer asserted that his century in Indore ranked among his finest innings, particularly given the challenging months he had spent away from home.
“It was one of my finest innings especially coming out of an injury. I was eagerly waiting to come back and perform for the team. All these games we are getting before the World Cup, it is a good platform for us, especially me as I have not got a lot of games under my belt."
Ultimately, India emerged victorious, clinching the game with a 99-run margin through the DLS Method.
