The BCCI provides an update on Shreyas Iyer’s injury.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has released a new update regarding India’s middle-order batting star’s ailment.

Iyer was unable to play in India’s Super Four match against Pakistan owing to back spasms. During the Asia Cup, the Mumbai batter made a return. He had been out of action for several months due to a bulging slipped disc and subsequent surgery.

He appeared twice in the competition but only batted once, against Pakistan in Group A. He raced to 14 runs in nine balls before being caught at mid-wicket off Haris Rauf’s bowling.

While Iyer was feeling better, he hadn’t totally recovered from the back spasms, according to the report. The medical staff has urged him to relax. As a result, the batter will also miss India’s second Super Four match in the Asia Cup.

Iyer’s presence is critical to India’s batting lineup, and he could be the answer to their number four dilemma. The batter has played 21 innings at the position and scored 819 runs at an average of 45.5.

Iyer indicated in an interview with the BCCI that he was focusing on being in the present, saying, “I’m happy being where I am.” I’m checking off all the boxes one by one. “I’m so glad to be here right now, soaking in every moment.”

KL Rahul batted at number four in his absence against Pakistan and scored a match-winning 111*. This was also Rahul’s return from a lengthy injury hiatus.
