New Delhi:

Delhi Daredevil's top-order batsman Shreyas Iyer has been called as a cover for Virat Kohli in the Indian squad for the fourth Test against Australia at Dharamsala. Kohli injured his shoulder during the third Test in Ranchi.

Iyer, 22, shot to limelight when he was bagged by Delhi Daredevils in the 2015 Indian Premier League auction for a whopping sum of INR 2.6 Crore, and the move paid dividends with the youngster amassing 439 runs from 14 games, and also winning the Emerging Player of the Year award.
