Shreyas Iyer was recently a part of team India in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. But, he got ruled out of the fourth Test despite being in the playing XI due to a back injury. Now, he is going to miss the upcoming edition of the Indian T20 League for the Kolkata franchise. Hence, the franchise named Nitish Rana as the interim skipper.


Reports were also there that Shreyas Iyer will miss the upcoming World Test Championship final. But, now according to a report by Cricbuzz, Iyer is focusing on a comeback in the WTC final. Hence, he is looking to avoid operations while taking an injection at the National Cricket Academy (NCA).

“All are on the same page that the operation can be deferred.” - A close source on Shreyas Iyer

While speaking to Cricbuzz, a source said: “He has met the specialist and the NCA officials. All are on the same page that the operation can be deferred. He will follow the experts' advice.” The Kolkata head coach, Chandrakant Pandit also expressed his views on not getting Iyer as the skipper. 


“Whatever little cricket I have played or coached, I have never gone back over things like squad unavailability. Shreyas's absence will make a difference since he is important, but this is truly unfortunate. We are hoping Shreyas will be back very soon and that will make a lot of difference to the team," he said.

In the four-match Test series against the Aussies, Iyer scored just 42 runs in four innings and that left all of his fans frustrated. He was coming off a good Test series with the bat against Bangladesh in Bangladesh. In that two-match series, KL Rahul was the skipper and won the series 2-0. Shreyas Iyer scored 202 runs in three innings. Listening to such decisions from the cricketer, fans went crazy and shared their views on the social media platform.
