New Delhi. The fourth day of the Ahmedabad Test was good for Team India in many ways. Virat Kohli hit a century after 1205 days. KS Bharat also batted in a stormy manner. Shreyas Iyer also had a good chance to play a big innings on a batting-friendly wicket. But, his back injury resurfaced. For this reason, he did not come out to bat on the fourth day of the Ahmedabad Test and India’s innings ended only after 9 wickets fell.
Shreyas Iyer’s lower back injury is going to raise the concern of Team India. Because even before this he was out of the team for the same reason and could not play the 3 ODI series against New Zealand. Shreyas was expected to return to Team India from the first Test against Australia in Nagpur. But this did not happen. He could not even play the Nagpur Test. Suryakumar Yadav made his Test debut in his absence. It is a different matter that Suryakumar’s debut was not good. He got out after scoring 8 runs.
Suryakumar will benefit from Shreyas’s injury
Captain Rohit Sharma dropped Suryakumar from the team as soon as Shreyas Iyer was fit. Suryakumar Yadav sat on the bench in the Delhi and Indore Tests and Shreyas Iyer got a chance. However, Shreyas failed in all four innings and now his back injury resurfaced in the Ahmedabad Test. India has to play a 3-ODI series against Australia from March 17. Looking at Iyer’s injury, his playing is looking difficult in this series. In his absence, Suryakumar Yadav’s lottery may open and he may get a chance in the ODI series.

Surya played in place of Shreyas in the New Zealand series as well.
Earlier, the Indian team management had given Suryakumar Yadav a chance when Shreyas Iyer did not play in the ODI series against New Zealand in January. It is a different matter that he could not capitalize on it and was able to score only 45 runs in 3 ODIs. Now once again Shreyas is injured. In such a situation, captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid can bet on Suryakumar in the ODI series against Australia.
