Shreyas Iyer struck an unbeaten 141 as India A crushed South Africa A by 7 wickets to clinch the Tri-Series in Pretoria on Tuesday.

 

After Farhan Behardien slammed a century to guide South Africa to 267-7, it was Iyer, who held fort to help India overcome the jitters.

After losing openers Karun Nair and Sanju Samson early, Iyer stitched a 141-run partnership with Vijay Shankar to ensure there was no slip-up. Even after Vijay Sharnkar returned to the pavilion, scoring 72, Iyer stood firm to guide the visitor home.
