Shreyas suffered an injury in his lower back. According to preliminary information, the injury is quite serious and Shreyas may have to be sidelined for almost a month.”
Based on this report, Shreyas is unlikely to bat in the second innings of the Ahmedabad Test. Also, he will not participate in the ODI series against Australia. He is then likely to miss the opening few matches of the 16th season of the IPL starting from March 31. He leads Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL. In his absence, KKR’s batting might be somewhat weakened.
The absence of Shreyas from batting in the first innings of the Ahmedabad Test did not hurt the Indian team as much. However, the innings of the Indian team ended only after losing 9 wickets. Then Suryakumar Yadav was seen fielding in his place in Australia’s second innings.
