IND vs ENG Test: BCCI on Saturday announced Team India’s squad for the remaining three matches of the Test series against England. Shreyas Iyer’s name was not included in this team. Although there was news recently about Iyer’s fitness, but when the team was announced, BCCI left his name out of the squad without giving any update regarding Iyer. Many questions started being raised regarding this because BCCI has definitely given the reason behind whatever changes have been made in the team. Nothing has been told only about Shreyas Iyer.

What could be the reason for injury or poor form?

Shreyas Iyer has been in poor form for some time now. Runs are not coming from his bat. Iyer disappointed in this series also. In such a situation, it can also be said that Iyer might have been dropped due to his poor form, but BCCI has not said anything like that, so it may be too early to say anything about it.

Iyer played innings of 35, 13, 27, 29 runs in four innings of the two matches of the series played against England. Iyer had a chance, but the fast bowlers have understood his weakness and it is clearly visible that it is causing them harm. Iyer has had a bad two years in Test cricket, averaging 21.60 in 3 matches this year and 13.16 in 4 Test matches in 2023.

This player’s chair was saved because of Iyer

If any one player got the most relief due to Iyer being out of the remaining matches of the series, then that player would be none other than Sarfaraz Khan. Actually, KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja have now returned to Team India’s squad after getting injured in the first Test. In such a situation, it was believed that if these players return, Sarfaraz Khan can be dropped again, but BCCI has retained Sarfaraz Khan in Team India.
