There is a lot of confusion regarding the last 3 test matches to be played against England. Because despite the long wait, Team India has not been announced yet. This confusion has also happened due to the fitness of the players, recently there was a report that middle order batsman Shreyas Iyer is not fit and may be out of the last three matches. But now it is claimed that the BCCI medical team has declared him fit.
According to the report of Cricinfo, Shreyas Iyer had informed the team management that he had suffered from back spasm in the last two days of the second Test, due to which perhaps he is not completely fit. After this, the BCCI medical team checked him, but the medical team declared Shreyas Iyer completely fit to play.
Shreyas is not in good form
Apart from Team India captain Rohit Sharma, Shreyas Iyer is the only batsman who has not been able to play any good innings in the series so far and the team has high expectations from him. Shreyas Iyer scored 35 and 13 runs in the first test, while he scored only 27 and 29 runs in the second test. Iyer is being criticized in this series because his batting performance, especially against fast bowling, has not been good.

Shreyas Iyer has had back problems before, be it during the Border Gavaskar Trophy or in other matches. In April last year, Shreyas Iyer had also undergone back surgery, due to which he was out of the IPL and Kolkata Knight Riders had to make Nitish Rana the captain in his place. Now everyone is waiting for the announcement of the team, which can happen on Friday-Saturday.
Let us tell you that apart from Shreyas Iyer, eyes are also on KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja. Both are currently in NCA and it is expected that they can join Team India in the third test match. If we talk about Virat Kohli, then his return is not possible and he can be out of the last three tests due to personal reasons.
