Shreyas Iyer may be out of IPL!
Let us tell you that the medical team of BCCI is monitoring Shreyas Iyer’s injury and the final decision on whether he will play in IPL 2023 or not will be taken by the medical team. In view of the lower back injury, Shreyas is feared to be out of IPL as well. Shreyas Iyer is the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders and will now complete his rehab at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.
Shreyas Iyer complained of swelling in the lower back after fielding for the entire 2 days in the Ahmedabad Test. Only after this, it was decided to get his scan done in a hurry and it was decided not to let him play further in the match.
