Moment to cherish’: Shreyas Iyer receives his India Test cap from Gavaskar

KANPUR: Iconic former captain Sunil Gavaskar on Thursday presented debutant Shreyas Iyer with India Test cap here, continuing head coach Rahul Dravid’s push to revive the bygone tradition of new entrants getting the coveted possession from the greats of Indian cricket.
Iyer became the 302nd player to make his Test debut for the national team and before the toss against New Zealand here, it was India’s greatest opener and former skipper Gavaskar who was invited by Dravid to present the cap to a fellow Mumbaikar.
Earlier, during the T20I series, Dravid had invited one of India’s most successful white-ball bowlers Ajit Agarkar to present Harshal Patel with his national cap.
