Shreyas Iyer complains of lower back pain, sent for scans


India’s efforts to move closer to Australia’s total of 480 entries in Ahmedabad suffered a blow with pain in the lower part of the back while maintaining Shreyas Iyer to bat on the morning of the fourth day.

Ravindra Jadeja batted ahead of Iyer on the third day, and while that wasn’t unusual (India often uses Jadeja left-footed to break a largely right-handed top order), Iyer didn’t come out to bat even as Jadeja was dismissed on the fourth. tomorrow. Instead, goalkeeper-batsman KS Bharat came in at No. 6.

The BCCI sent this statement shortly after: “Shreyas Iyer complained of lower back pain after the game on the third day. He has gone for a scan and is being monitored by the BCCI medical team.”

It is not yet clear if Iyer would be able to bat in this Test match.

The injury will particularly worry India as back problems have dogged Iyer for the past few weeks – keeping him out of the first test of this Border-Gavaskar seriesas well as the three parties ODI series against New Zealand that preceded it.
