Shreyas Iyer: Shreyas Iyer complains of lower-back pain, sent for scans: In the last match of the Border-Gavaskar Test series being played between India and Australia, the news is coming out that Indian team’s middle batsman Shreyas Iyer was injured, so Shreyas Iyer did not bat.
The Australian cricket team scored 480 runs while batting first, against which the Indian team scored 571 runs and took a lead of 91 runs in this match.
Shreyas Iyer may be out of ODI cricket
According to reports, Shreyas Iyer complained of back pain to the cricket team management on Saturday, after which he was taken for a medical scan. There is no official news from the BCCI regarding the injury yet, but if it is talked about, his back injury has come up again.
The news of Cricketer Shreyas Iyer’s injury has once again raised questions about the Indian team and the National Cricket Academy’s rules for dealing with player injuries. Shreyas Iyer is likely to miss the three-match ODI against Australia starting March 17 in Mumbai.
Questions raised on NCA and cricket team management
World Cup is the most important tournament of this year and Shreyas Iyer is also going to captain Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL. In such a situation, the news is coming out that they will be given rest. After Shreyas Iyer missed the first Test of the series in Nagpur due to a groin problem, Shreyas Iyer returned to the squad for the second match in Delhi. However, the question is now that the NC allowed a player to play who was not fully fit for the match.
What does the Cricket rules say?
If a batsman sustains a head or arm injury while fielding, the team may field another player in his place. But if a player has back pain or any other problem outside the field, the match can be played without a batsman. Something similar happened today with the Indian team too, India’s first innings ended with 10 batsmen.
Fielding 170 overs suffered
On Saturday, Ravindra Jadeja was sent in to bat at number five after Gill was dismissed when Iyer was suffering from back pain. Iyer didn’t come to bat on Sunday as he was not in the condition to bat.
“Fielding around 170 overs during Australia’s innings can cause injury,” said a former national selector on condition of anonymity. But they do not understand why the mandatory rule of playing at least one domestic match was not introduced by Iyer?
Shreyans Iyer could not stand against the fielding
Shreyans Iyer did not play in the Nagpur Test and was declared fit for the second Test. He played in both the Delhi and Indore Tests but his body could not withstand fielding for long in the Ahmedabad match. When Iyer first suffered a groin problem in January, he was out for a month and underwent rigorous rehabilitation at the NCA and was declared fit by the time the Ranji season ended.
