Twitter was full of praise for Delhi Daredevils batsman Shreyas Iyer, who scripted a sensational two-wicket win for Delhi Daredevils with a classy 96 against Gujarat Lions.

He reached his highest IPL score but was unlucky to miss out on a well deserved hundred. Overall, Iyer hammered 15 fours and two sixes in his 57-ball knock.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the innings

Earlier in the match, Aaron Finch (69 off 39) stitched a 92-run stand with Dinesh Karthik (40 off 28) to lead Lions to 195 for five. Daredevils looked down and out at 121 for six, needing another 75 off 36, before Iyer came up with a dazzling display of strokeplay to stage a dramatic turnaround for Daredevils.
