Shreyas Iyer Not Playing IND vs AUS WTC Final

The important news update coming from the India camp is that their premier middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer will not be available for the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2023 final against Australia starting from 7 June, 2023 at the Kennington Oval in London. India have performed consistently well both in the batting as well as bowling departments in the last 4 years which is why they are playing their second WTC final in a row. Interestingly, the Indian team have beaten Australia as many as 4 times during the last 8 Test matches between these two teams and lost just a couple of games.

For India, middle-order batter Shreyas Iyer will miss out for the IND vs AUS WTC final 2023 starting from Wednesday as he is currently recovering from a shoulder injury. The right-handed batsman last played for the national team during the home Test series against Australia where he played a couple of games but failed to contribute much. It is still not clear as to when will the 28-year-old cricketer be able to make his comeback on the cricketing field as he also missed the recently concluded IPL 2023 season. In his short Test career, Iyer has scored 666 runs from as many as 10 Test matches at an average of over 44 that includes 5 half-centuries and 1 hundred.

However, in his absence, the Indian team management have brought back senior middle-order batsman Ajinkya Rahane in the side for this summit clash against Australia. Rahane has a lot of experience playing in the English conditions and also looked in an impressive form during the last domestic season.
