Shreyas Iyer ruled out of the New Zealand ODI series

Shreyas Iyer was on Tuesday ruled out of the upcoming three-match ODI series against New Zealand starting today with a back injury.

He will head to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for further assessment and management.

“Team India batter Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the upcoming 3-match ODI series against New Zealand due to a back injury. He will be heading to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for further assessment and management,” BCCI secretary Jay Shah said in an official statement.

Iyer was India’s top run-getter in ODIs last year.

He was preferred over Suryakumar Yadav for the first two matches of the recently-concluded ODI series against Sri Lanka.

Iyer did not manage to get a big score but made useful contributions of 28, 28 and 38.

Instead of Iyer, Rajat Patidar will play against New Zealand. India play the first ODI.
