Apart from his batting, Shreyas is renowned for his magic tricks in cricketing circles. He has stunned his teammates and coaching staff in the past and it was Mohammed Siraj’s turn on Monday.
In the video posted by the BCCI, Iyer can be seen asking Siraj to pick a card from the deck and hold it in between his palms after showing it to all the players present in the room.
Iyer then picks another card from the deck which is a joker and rubs it over his teammate’s hand. Much to the surprise of Siraj, when he opened his hands, the card was not 4 of spades but the joker that the middle order batter picked later.
Siraj couldn’t speak for a while and Shreyas Iyer mocked him by saying “Miyan kuch toh bolo miyan, kuch toh bolo” . The pacer could only throw the card in surprise with KL Rahul and Ruturaj Gaikwad watching the act.
