Shreyas Iyer remains off field due to aggravated back injury in Ranji Trophy final, to seek medical advice | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Mumbai batter Shreyas Iyer will be seeking medical advice after being unable to continue on the field during the fifth and final day of the Ranji Trophy final in Mumbai due to an aggravated back injury.
During the match against Vidarbha, Iyer showcased his skill with a remarkable 95 runs off 111 balls, including 10 fours and three sixes.
However, he required on-field treatments on two separate occasions on the third day of the final after spending more than three hours in the middle.
“Iyer is injured,” told a source in the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) when asked about Iyer’s absence from the field on the final day.
“He will have to seek medical advice for which he is likely to go on March 16.”
A team source had claimed after the play on Day 4 that Iyer had recovered from the issue and would be back on the field for the final day. However, this turned out not to be the case.
Instead, Iyer remained within the confines of the dressing room, still dressed in the Mumbai training kit. He was only seen for the first time on Thursday after the domestic giant completed their 169-run win, securing their 42nd title win.
