New Delhi: Indian cricket team’s star batter Shreyas Iyer was recently spotted wearing a black sticker on his tricep with the symbol ‘K’. Some people might link the black sticker on his arm with his Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kolkata Knight Riders. However, this is not the case. Iyer has partnered with a Bengaluru-based startup Ultrahuman. The sticker Iyer is using is basically a product called Ultrahuman M1, which provides health insights on metabolism fitness by monitoring real-time blood glucose. The sticker has biosensors that provide real-time info to an iPhone app named Ultrahuman.
Shreyas Iyer was recently spotted playing India vs South Africa 1st T20 International at Arun Jaitely Stadium in New Delhi. India had an opportunity to script history by making the world record of winning their 13th consecutive T20 match.
Batting first, India batters posted a mammoth 211-run target on board but the bowlers in the second innings went for plenty as South Africa chased down the target to break India’s winning streak in the shortest format of the game.
Shreyas Iyer under the scanner for dropping Van der Dussen’s catch
India posted 211/4 batting first which seemed a good target but an unbeaten century partnership between van der Dusen and David Miller helped South Africa register a seven-wicket win with five balls to spare.
Miller played an unbeaten 64 off 31 balls and Van der Dussen scored 75 off 46 balls. Dussen was dropped on 29 by Shreyas off Avesh Khan’s delivery which cost India dearly.
