Indian middle-order batsman and the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders, Shreyas Iyer, has undergone a successful back surgery in London. While he will miss the upcoming World Test Championship (WTC) final in June, it is expected that he will make a full recovery before the ODI World Cup 2023, which is scheduled to take place later this year.
The surgery, which took place on Tuesday, is expected to address the back issues that have been troubling Iyer for some time now. Iyer is a crucial player for both India and Kolkata Knight Riders, and his absence will be felt in the upcoming matches. However, the news of his successful surgery will come as a relief to fans and cricket enthusiasts, who will be hoping to see him back in action soon.
As per the latest updates, Shreyas Iyer is expected to take about three months to recover from his back surgery before he resumes training. The rehab process will be closely monitored by the medical team to ensure a full and speedy recovery.
Will he be back for the World Cup?
Ideally, the Mumbai batter should be fully fit and back in action before the ODI World Cup scheduled to take place in India later this year. His return to the team will be a significant boost to the Indian batting line-up, and his presence on the field is sure to bolster the team’s chances of success in the tournament.
Shreyas Iyer had only recently made his comeback in the Border Gavaskar Trophy earlier this year. The 28-year-old had recovered from a previous back issue, and he made a successful comeback in the Test series against Australia.
However, during the last Test match against Australia, Iyer experienced a relapse of his back injury and had to be ruled out of the game. This was a big setback for the Indian team, as Iyer had been performing well in the series, and his absence was felt in the final match. However, after his recent surgery, fans will be hoping to see him back in action.
