Colombo, Sep 10 (PTI) India batter Shreyas Iyer was on Sunday ruled out of the marquee Asia Cup match against Pakistan due to a back spasm.
Iyer had made a comeback from a back surgery in India’s Asia Cup opener on September 2. It was his first competitive game in close to six months.
“Shreyas Iyer had a back spasm during warm-up today,” read a BCCI update.
Iyer’s unavailability allowed India to accommodate a fit again K L Rahul, who last played in the IPL before undergoing a thigh surgery.
Both Iyer and Rahul have also been named in India’s World Cup squad but questions marks remain over their match fitness as they are back after a long injury lay-off.
