Shreyas Iyer could miss cricket for significant period due to back injury | Cricket News

AHMEDABAD: Shreyas IyerThe recurring lower back injury “doesn’t look good at the moment,” said India captain Rohit Sharma, who could not set a timeframe for the elegant right-hander’s return to competitive cricket.
Apart from the upcoming three-game ODI series against Australia, Iyer could also miss the IPL for Kolkata Knight Riders, a franchise he leads in the cash-rich league.
Iyer, who was part of the playing XI, was unable to bat during the Indian innings on the best hitting surface after his lower right back issues resurfaced after fielding over 167 overs during the innings australian.
The PTI had announced on Sunday that Iyer was absent from the ODI three-game series against Australia, starting March 17 in Mumbai. But according to the latest information received, his participation in the IPL also looks to be in danger and a call would be taken after talking to a specialist.
“Poor guy…It was just such an unfortunate incident. He had to wait all day to fight, then when the day was over, the problem he had with his back reoccurred. He was sent to hospital for scans,” The skipper looked a bit crestfallen when asked about the player’s state of fitness.

“I don’t know the exact ratio of the scans, but he doesn’t seem to be doing so well. Obviously that’s why he’s not here,” Sharma added.
The Indian captain said he was unsure how long it would take for the dashing hitter to be fit again.
“So we don’t know exactly how long it will take him to recover or when he’ll be back. When it happened it didn’t look so good. Hopefully he recovers quickly and will come back to play again,” the boss said.
Iyer’s injury is another example where the National Cricket Academy (NCA) does not come out smelling like a rose.
After the fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna – who both underwent delayed back surgeries – how Iyer was allowed to play a test match directly, instead of taking part in the Irani Cup in Gwalior, is a question now.
In the case of Mumbaikar, the previous policy of checking an unfit player returning after NCA rehab, in domestic cricket was not followed by the management of the team led by Rahul Dravid.
It was in fact Dravid, who as NCA boss had devised the policy in consultation with the former National Selection Committee headed by MSK Prasad, that no player in rehab at the NCA would return to the international fold without playing at least one match. domestic game.
