After winning the second Test match against England team by 106 runs, the Indian team will be looking to make a stronger comeback and win the series. This series currently stands at 1-1 with three matches yet to be played. Indian cricket enthusiasts are anxiously awaiting updates on Shreyas Iyer's injury, which could force him to sit out the important upcoming Test matches against England, as per reports.
The key player in the middle-order has played a vital role in the team, but recent reports of back stiffness and groin discomfort have raised concerns about his participation. However, Shreyas Iyer will miss the final three Tests between India and England due to issues with his back and groin. According to reports, Iyer has experienced stiffness in his back and discomfort in his groin, particularly while playing forward defense. This raises significant doubts about his availability for the remainder of the England series.
“Iyer has informed the Indian team management and the medical staff that his back gets stiff after playing more than 30 balls and he feels pain in his groin while playing forward defence. Post surgery, he is facing this issue for the first time so he has been advised to rest for a few weeks. He will head to NCA later," a source told The Indian Express.
Ravindra Jadeja hints of his comeback for remaining England Tests
Indian cricket team's all-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja, shared a significant injury update on social media just before the team's selection for the remaining three Test matches against England. Jadeja sustained a hamstring injury during the initial Test match, forcing him to sit out the second match, which India convincingly won in Visakhapatnam. With the series evenly poised at 1-1, Jadeja's return from injury would be highly advantageous for India. Accompanied by a photo from the National Cricket Academy, the cricketer captioned it with, "Getting better #NCA".
In a significant achievement, Jasprit Bumrah has become the first Indian fast bowler to claim the top spot in the Test rankings. This remarkable feat follows his outstanding performance against England in Visakhapatnam, where the 30-year-old secured a nine-wicket match haul. Bumrah's ascent to the number one position surpasses the likes of Pat Cummins, Kagiso Rabada, and Ravichandran Ashwin, making him the fourth Indian to achieve this milestone. Joining the ranks of Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, and Bishan Singh Bedi, Bumrah's accomplishment marks a historic moment for Indian fast bowlers.
