After Shreyas Iyer’s injury, it is believed that he may be out of the remaining matches of the India vs England series.
IND vs ENG 3rd Test: After the injury of Indian middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer, it is believed that he may be out of the remaining matches of the India vs England series. After this latest setback, speculation has intensified as to who will replace him in the playing eleven. Iyer’s injury occurred a few days before the third Test in Rajkot.
Will Iyer’s injury benefit Rahul or Sarfaraz?
KL Rahul, who was out with an injury after the first Test, is expected to return in the Rajkot Test. Since Iyer is likely to miss the third Test, Rahul may get a chance. Rahul had played a good innings in Hyderabad before sitting out due to injury.
Another contender for this spot could be Sarfaraz Khan. This brilliant batsman, who has a tremendous record in domestic cricket, has been ignored by the selectors till now. Despite being included in the squad for the second Test, Rajat Patidar received the call-up ahead of Khan. This may raise the question whether Sarfaraz will finally be given a chance or Patidar will remain in the team.
