IPL 2023: Shreyas Iyer Injury Update – Another day, another injury relapse for another Indian player. After Jasprit Bumrah paid the price for a rushed return, Shreyas Iyer has had a relapse of his lower back injury. This is the third time in the last 6 months that a player has suffered an injury relapse after getting fitness clearance from the National Cricket Academy. Shreyas Iyer has been taken for scans and the Kolkata Knight Riders captain is now a doubtful starter for IPL. He did not bat in the 1st innings and has been ruled out of the IND AUS Ahmedabad Test. It should be noted that Jasprit Bumrah is out for more than a year after a relapse from a back injury. Follow IND vs AUS LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN.

Iyer had just returned from the NCA after missing the SriLanka ODI series following the back injury. He also missed the first Test. But he was sent straight back in for the 2nd Test without any phased return. BCCI is expectedly frustrated and is losing trust in the Nitin Patel-led Sports Science division at the NCA. While there was a hint at an overhaul of the NCA Sports science team, it may now happen sooner than later.

“It’s frustrating for sure. And it’s not the first time that a player has recurrence of an injury. We should have learned from Bumrah but we did not. Shreyas should have been eased into the team and not rushed to play grinding Test cricket. Hopefully, he will be fit for the ODI series. But it’s difficult to say anything at this point. He had scans and is currently under the medical team’s observation,” a senior BCCI official told InsideSport.

In the last 6 months, Jasprit Bumrah and Deepak Chahar paid the price of a rushed return. Even Ravindra Jadeja’s return was delayed after the NCA tried to rush him to competitive cricket.

BCCI Statement on Shreyas Iyer:

“Shreyas Iyer complained of pain in his lower back following the third day’s play? He has gone for scans and the BCCI Medical Team is monitoring him,” BCCI said in a medical update.

However, back injuries are tricky and the medical team never wants to risk a player. Hence, it is very much likely that Iyer will be unavailable for the ODI series. If the scan results indicate further problems, he will be a doubtful starter for IPL 2023, at least in the initial phase.

Shreyas Iyer Injury Update:

  • Iyer complained of back pain after Day 3’s play.
  • Ravindra Jadeja came out to bat ahead of Iyer in Ahmedabad Test.
  • He was immediately taken for scans and did not bat any further in the first innings.
  • From the initial review, Iyer has a recurrence of his back injury that kept him out of the 1st Test.
  • He will now head to NCA for further assessment and rehab.
  • Hence, Iyer is now doubtful not only for the ODI series but also for the IPL.
  • BCCI will take a call after NCA assesses his condition.
