But before this series, a piece of very bad news has come out for Team India. A big match-winner player of the team has been ruled out of the first match of the series due to injury.
Team India recently played the ODI series against New Zealand. Team India’s batsman Shreyas Iyer was ruled out of this series due to injury. Shreyas Iyer was out of this series due to a back injury. According to media reports, Shreyas Iyer has still not fully recovered from this injury, due to which he has been ruled out of the first match of the Australia Test series.
Shreyas Iyer is one of India’s most important players in Test cricket at the moment. A source associated with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) told the Indian Express about Shreyas Iyer, ‘Shreyas Iyer’s injury has not healed as expected. It will take at least two weeks for him to play cricket again. He will not be available for the first Test and his availability for the second Test will depend on his fitness report.
