Shreyas Iyer Withdraws from Ranji Trophy Due to Back Pain, NCA Confirms Fitness

Indian cricketer Shreyas Iyer‘s participation in the upcoming IPL 2024 season is under scrutiny following his withdrawal from the ongoing Ranji Trophy due to a back injury. Iyer, who missed the third Test against England due to the same issue, was expected to play for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy quarter-final match against Baroda. However, he informed the Mumbai Cricket Association about his unavailability for the crucial match.

The National Cricket Academy (NCA) has provided a contrasting update on Iyer’s fitness, stating that he is fit and available for selection. This discrepancy has raised questions about Iyer’s availability and fitness for the IPL 2024 season, which is scheduled to begin from March 22.

Iyer’s absence from the Ranji Trophy and the conflicting reports regarding his fitness have sparked speculation among fans and experts. The 27-year-old’s performance in the Test series against England was below par, scoring 35, 13, 27, and 39 runs in the first two matches.

With the IPL being a high-profile tournament and Iyer being a key player, his availability for the league holds significant importance for his team. IPL franchises will be closely monitoring Iyer’s recovery and fitness ahead of the tournament.

The fourth Test match between India and England is set to begin on February 23 in Ranchi, with Team India leading the series 2-1. Iyer’s focus will be on recovering from his injury and returning to full fitness to be considered for selection in the IPL 2024.
