India’s middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer on Thursday posted a comical video with his sister Shresta and their dog Betty on Instagram. In the short clip, Iyer and Shresta did a harmless experiment on Betty to find out whom she loves more and the result was not in the favour of the Indian cricketer. The footage starts with Iyer, Betty and Shresta standing on a street, in the background somebody narrates, “If you have a dog. Run in the opposite direction to see who your dog loves more.” When the duo did as told by the narrator, the dog ran in Shresta’s direction. “And when the camera is on, she runs in the opposite direction,” Iyer wrote. The upload was an instant hit on the social media platform with fans dropping their reactions in the comment space.
“Just accept the defeat, Iyer,” wrote one of the users.
Another said, “Wow! Awesome Shreyas bro.”
Most of them shared red-heart and fire emojis in the comments.
Iyer was ruled out of the now-postponed 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) after suffering a shoulder injury during India’s limited-overs series against England earlier this year. In his absence, swashbuckling wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant was appointed Delhi Capitals’ captain.
Iyer dislocated his left shoulder while fielding in the first ODI of three-match series, which India won 2-1. Last month, Iyer underwent surgery. And now it seems that the right-handed batsman has started his rehabilitation.
Iyer can be next seen in action during India’s limited-overs tour of Sri Lanka later this year if he can complete his recovery before the squad is announced. He would have to prove his fitness to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore before he can be available for the selection.
India is slated to play three-match ODI and as many T20I series against Sri Lanka, starting July 13.
