Shreyas Iyer, captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and middle-order batsman for Team India, had successful back surgery in the United Kingdom. Iyer’s recuperation means he’ll miss the World Test Championship (WTC) final at London’s Oval in June and the whole IPL 2023.
The Times of India reports that Iyer had back surgery on Tuesday in London. The 28-year-old is expected to be out for three months but hopes to make a complete recovery in time for the ODI World Cup 2023 in India.
Shreyas Iyer is expected to be ready for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023
Shreyas Iyer had only just recovered from a back ailment when he made his comeback in the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023. at the most recent Test, played at Ahmedabad, Iyer was active for the first two days before being benched.
Injuries have been a constant problem for the Indian team in previous years. Jasprit Bumrah, another star Indian bowler, has also just recovered from surgery.
Jasprit Bumrah’s fitness for the ODI World Cup in 2023 is a source of optimism for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The fast bowler had surgery in New Zealand to fix the problem with his back. The right-arm fast bowler has returned to NCA, where BCCI is formulating a rehabilitation strategy in time for the ODI World Cup.
From October 5th to November 11th, 2023, India will host the One Day International World Cup.
For the record, Bumrah last played for India in October of 2022. Because of this, the Mumbai Indians pacer was unable to participate in the Asia Cup or the T20 World Cup. Despite being picked for the Sri Lanka series, the fast bowler’s back issue flared up again, and BCCI paid the price for pushing him too rapidly.
Bumrah will also miss the Asia Cup and the World Test Championship Final in 2023. From June 7-11, 2023, Australia and India will compete in the ICC World Test Championship Final at London’s Oval. Pat Cummins will lead Australia’s 17-person team. The Indian squad is still a mystery.
