Star India National Cricket Team batter Shreyas Iyer came up with yet another unique celebration in the three-match ODI series against the West Indies National Cricket Team.
In the first ODI against West Indies at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad on Friday, Shreyas Iyer grabbed a good catch to dismiss batter Shamarh Brooks in the 24th over and he celebrated the wicket in a unique style by showcasing his dance moves.
Later, Iyer, in a video shared by the BCCI on their official Twitter handle, revealed the story behind his move, asserting that the spectators were teasing him by saying ‘drop a catch, drop a catch’, so he decided to dance like West Indies players after taking the catch.
