New Delhi: Even after winning the Asia Cup title for the record 8th time, the tension of the Indian team management must have increased. The reason for this is injuries to the players. Coach Rahul Dravid himself has also said that injury to players just before the World Cup can harm India. Meanwhile, former opener and commentator Gautam Gambhir has warned the Indian team management about the injury of a player. Gambhir has said a big thing about Shreyas Iyer’s place in the World Cup team.
Let us tell you that Shreyas Iyer was out of Team India since March this year. He had back surgery. He made a comeback in the Asia Cup but was out after one match due to back pain and stiffness and after that did not play in the entire tournament. Did not even appear in the final of Asia Cup.
Gautam Gambhir said on Star Sports about Shreyas Iyer’s fitness, it is a matter of concern. You remained out of the team for so long and then returned for the Asia Cup and became unfit again after one match. I don’t think that after this the team management will include Iyer in the squad for a big tournament like the World Cup. You will see in the coming days that Iyer will not be a part of the World Cup squad and someone else will join the team in his place.
Shreyas should not be included in the World Cup team: Gambhir
Gambhir further said, “You should always go to the World Cup with fit players. Performance is a different thing. Imagine if a player is suffering from cramps or anything else then you cannot get his replacement, so if Iyer is not fit in this tournament then it is very difficult for him to be a part of the World Cup because of his injury and Then we don’t even know what his form is like at the moment. Whatever form he had, it was 7-8 months ago, after which he has played only one match.
Gambhir targeted NCA over Iyer’s repeated injuries. Gambhir said, “If you have to raise questions then ask the NCA because he was here for so many months and then he (Shreyas) was declared fit from there also. Who knows, maybe they approved them early?”
No worries about Shreyas: Rohit
Earlier, after the final of Asia Cup, captain Rohit Sharma said about the fitness of Shreyas Iyer, “Shreyas was not available for the final because he did not meet many parameters. I think he is 99 percent fine. He is doing both batting and fielding. “I don’t think it’s a matter of concern for us.”
