In fact, the Indian team and the national Cricket With the recurrence of Shreyas’ back injury, the injury management of the academy has once again come under the scanner.

With the World Cup being the most important tournament of the year and the player set to lead KKR in the IPL, it would be prudent if he takes rest for some time.

Iyer also missed the first Test in Nagpur due to a back problem before returning for the second game in Delhi.

However, the big question now is whether the NCA has once again cleared a player who is not fully fit.

It is learned that Iyer felt unwell on Saturday and hence Ravindra Jadeja was promoted to No.5.

This player did not even come on the field on Sunday as he was not in a position to bat.

“Yes, it could be a case of re-emergence of the injury after fielding for almost 170 overs during the Australian innings. But I don’t understand why the earlier rule of making it mandatory for Iyer to play at least one home match was not implemented.

Iyer missed the Nagpur Test and was declared fit before the Delhi Test and played in both Delhi and Indore but his body did not go through the same rigor as it did in Ahmedabad.

Iyer, when he first suffered a lower back problem in January, was out for a month and underwent intensive rehabilitation at the national level Cricket Academy (NCA) and by the time he was declared fit, the Ranji Trophy season was over anyway.

The selector said, “But you had the Irani Cup happening and you could have waited for Iyer to come back and let him play the Irani Cup in similar weather conditions and see how the body would recover after being on the field for two days.” How’s it going.” ,
