Shreyas Iyer likely to miss first half of IPL 2023

Indian batsman and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Shreyas Iyer is likely to miss the first half of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. Sunil Narine and Nitish Rana are among the frontrunners to take the leadership position in the franchise during his time away from the game.

As per reports , Iyer has opted out of back surgery for his recurring lower-back injury. He has been advised to rest and is continuing his rehab. The injury had first ruled him out of the final Test against Australia during the recently-concluded Border-Gavaskar Trophy and he also missed the ODI series against the visitors.

There is no definite return date marked for Iyer and he will be under the supervision of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) medical staff at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru. KKR however expects their skipper to be back for the second half of the cash-rich league.
