Madhya Pradesh and India batter Venkatesh Iyer scored a scintillating century in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021 against Chandigarh at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot on December 12, 2021.
Ever since bursting into the scene, Venkatesh Iyer has not looked back, making an impact in almost every match he has played. The 26-year-old, who made his India debut in the recently-concluded T20Is against New Zealand, has continued his imperious form in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy.
Batting first, MP made 331/9 in 50 overs with captain Aditya Srivastava making 70 and Venkatesh Iyer top-scoring with 151 in 113 balls with 8 fours and 10 sixes to his name.
Iyer batted at no.6 and scored his runs at a strike rate of 133.63, before being dismissed by Sandeep Sharma.
But what caught everyone’s eyes was the way Iyer celebrated after reaching his century. He imitated South Indian movie megastar Rajinikanth’s iconic sunglasses twirl while acknowledging his teammates’ applause. The actor is celebrating his 71st birthday today.
A video of the same was shared by the BCCI on their domestic cricket Twitter account.
