Shreyas Iyer was dismissed cheaply in the first innings of the Delhi Test
Nathan Lyon hunted Shreyas Iyer for the second day
Iyer was brilliantly caught by Peter Handscomb at short leg.
New Delhi. Australia has increased India’s difficulties in the second Test of the Border Gavaskar Trophy being played in Delhi. On the second day of the Delhi Test, Australia got 4 wickets of India before lunch. These four wickets came in the account of off-spinner Nathan Lyon. Shreyas Iyer, who could not play the first Test due to injury, was dismissed after scoring 4 runs in the first innings of the Delhi Test. He was hunted by Nathan Lyon. However, Peter Handscomb had more hand in the wicket of Shreyas than Lion.
Peter Handscomb took a wonderful catch of Shreyas Iyer at forward short leg. Handscomb also got luck in this. Shreyas Iyer played a strong flick on the ball of Nathan Lyon. The ball went towards Peter Handscomb at full speed. For this reason, he could not catch the catch in one go. First the ball hit his arm and it seemed that the ball would fall down. But, showing speed, Peter somehow caught the ball before falling down.
Iyer also did not believe once that Peter Handscomb caught his catch. But, as soon as the Australia fielder started celebrating, Iyer understood that now the time has come for him to return to the pavilion. This was the fourth victim of Lion on the second day.
