The hop-push ups challenge has been doing rounds quite a lot amongst the Indian cricket team and Shreyas Iyer is the latest one to do it. Shreyas Iyer followed the likes of his captain Virat Kohli and all-rounder Hardik Pandya in doing so, adding a twist to it. When Kohli did it, the fans were in awe of the skipper, earning a million likes.
Hardik Pandya was perhaps the first one to do it while Kohli introduced another tweak to the push-up exercise. While the Delhi cricketer is unlikely to upload another video of doing hop push-ups, his teammate Shreyas Iyer shared a clip of doing the same activity.
Shreyas Iyer introduced a tweak by performing the task using two sofas. The classy right-handed batsman took to his official Twitter handle and uploaded the clip that garnered him plenty of praises.
Below is Shreyas Iyer’s push-up video:

Iyer will mark his return to competitive cricket in the Indian Premier League (IPL), beginning from the 19th of September in the UAE. Shreyas Iyer is one of the best batsmen in India’s ranks today and has solidified his spot as their number four in white-ball cricket. He will lead the Delhi Capitals, which assembled in Mumbai on Saturday and boarded the flight on Sunday.
As per protocols, all the players have to spend six days in quarantine and undergo rounds of testing as well. The likes of Kings XI Punjab, Kolkata Knight Riders, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals, and Chennai Super Kings left for UAE too. RCB skipper Virat Kohli departed via a Charter flight from Mumbai.
