What happened to the top-order batsman Shreyas Iyer in the fourth Test against Australia? Fans are wondering why he is not coming to bat. But Shreyas Iyer did not come to the crease due to back pain. BCCI said this. Iyer is scheduled to bat as part of the fourth day’s match. But due to back pain he thought to come later in the batting position. But there is no chance for that, it seems that Iyer will be away from this test as well as the ODI series with Aussies soon. The National Cricket Academy and BCCI are jointly reviewing Batter Iyer’s situation. On the other hand, the 3 ODI series against Australia will start from March 17 in Mumbai. Due to the injury, Iyer will miss the latest Test as well as the ODI series.
Shreyas Iyer told the BCCI that he had pain in his back after the third day of the fourth Test in Ahmedabad. So the management sent him for scanning. BCCI gave a medical update saying that the BCCI medical team is monitoring Iyer’s health condition. It is for this reason that Iyer did not come to bat today. On the other hand, Kohli’s huge century and Akshar Patel’s (79) made India lead by 91 runs in the first innings. Although it looked like making a double century, the team made mistakes at the end. India’s innings ended at 571 runs as Labuschenne took the given catch. It is known that Iyer did not come to bat due to injury. On the other hand, there is a crucial ODI World Cup this year. BCCI hopes that key players like Iyer should be available for this. Iyer is also the captain of KKR team in IPL. There is no clarity yet on the chances of Iyer recovering soon and joining the team. BCCI is taking care of Iyer’s health.

India, who looked to have at least a 200-run lead over their opponents Aussies, faltered at the end. At 555 for 5, India lost wickets at successive intervals. Akshar Patel (79) was bowled by Starc, but Team India immediately lost the remaining three wickets. Ashwin (7) and Umesh ducked out. India’s innings was limited to 571 as former captain Kohli fell for the last wicket. The first innings lead was just 91 runs. With only one more day to play, the final Test is heading for a draw.
