Shreyas was batting at 75 when stumps were drawn on Thursday as India ended day one at 258/4.
On Friday, the right-handed batter walked in confidently and smashed two boundaries in Kyle Jamieson’s first over at the Green Park Stadium on Friday. Shreyas then continued his fine form and brought up his maiden Test ton.
“A debut to remember for @ShreyasIyer15 as he brings up his maiden Test century,” BCCI tweeted.
