India news – Asia Cup – Shreyas Iyer forced to miss Pakistan game after suffering back spasms

Both Iyer and Rahul, as has been well documented, are returning from injuries. Before the Asia Cup, Iyer hadn’t played since the home ODI series against Australia in early March, and missed the IPL altogether, as he recovered from a back condition that necessitated surgery. He was picked in the Asia Cup squad – as well as in the squad for the ODI World Cup starting next month – after being declared fit by the medical personnel at the BCCI’s National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. He was in the India XI for both their group-stage games at the Asia Cup, scoring 14 against Pakistan (he didn’t need to bat against Nepal as India won by ten wickets).
