Indian cricket team batter Shreyas Iyer may end up missing the last three Tests against England in the five-match series due to injury. According to a report by Indian Express, Iyer has complained of stiffness on his back and pain in his groin area while batting and that can lead to the batter not playing the remaining matches. The report further claimed that although the kits of all the India cricketers were sent to Rajkot from Visakhapatnam, Iyer’s equipment was sent to his home in Mumbai. The next possible step for Iyer is expected to be a rehabilitation process at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru.

Iyer underwent a back surgery in 2023 after an injury and with the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 just round the corner, there will be keen interest regarding his fitness.

œIyer has informed the Indian team management and the medical staff that his back gets stiff after playing more than 30 balls and he feels pain in his groin while playing forward defence,” a source told The Indian Express.

œPost surgery, he is facing this issue for the first time so he has been advised to rest for a few weeks. He will head to NCA later.”

Meanwhile, as per a report in the Indian Express, Virat hasn’t communicated to the BCCI the date of his return. But, the selectors would draft him into the squad as soon as he makes himself available.

“Virat will decide when he wants to make a comeback to the Indian side. He hasn’t informed us till now but whenever he decides to play, he will be included in the team,” a BCCI official was quoted.

“While representing the country has always been his top priority, certain personal situations demand his presence and undivided attention. The BCCI respects his decision and the Board and team management has extended its support to the star batter,” the BCCI had said in a statement after Kohli pulled out of the first two Tests against England.
