What Tendulkar said about Iyer?

From Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar to Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, several icons of the game made their presence felt at the Wankhede Stadium during the Ranji Trophy final. India captain Rohit was in attendance when Iyer slammed a fine half-century for Mumbai. Batting legend Tendulkar also lauded Iyer for his stroke-filled knock in the final.

“First, a crucial partnership between @ajinkyarahane88 and Musheer Khan put Mumbai in a solid position. Then, Musheer’s stand with @ShreyasIyer15 has taken the game further away from Vidarbha. Had a good time watching the game today with my friends and colleagues,” Tendulkar said.
