Meanwhile, we have seen that players remain in touch with their fans through their social media accounts. However, it can be an addiction to young players like Shreyas Iyer.

The 23-year-old right-hander from Mumbai also revealed an interesting story when the girl’s behavior changed when he grabbed a deal in the IPL. Subsequently, Iyer came to know that the girl was behind the money.

“Soon after the auction news was out, this girl whom I knew started messaging me. On confronting her as to why she is desperately trying to reach out. I got to know that she was doing so because she was happy for me.

“That’s when I understood that rather than getting to know me, she was behind the money,” he revealed.

Shreyas Iyer has shown the promise to be the future of Indian cricket. In fact, he also led the India A side with aplomb taking them to victory against England Lions and Windies A. Therefore, Iyer will look to keep impressing with his good performances.
