KKR in Trouble? Shreyas Iyer's IPL 2024 Start in Doubt!

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Shreyas Iyer might miss the initial matches of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season due to a recurring back injury.

During his recent 95-run knock in the Ranji Trophy final, Iyer experienced back pain. This seems to be a recurrence of the same injury that sidelined him from the entire IPL 2023 season and required surgery. He required medical attention twice on the field and missed the following day’s play. Reports suggest this significantly reduces his chances of playing in the remaining Ranji Trophy final. This situation casts a shadow over Iyer’s participation in the initial IPL 2024 matches.

Iyer’s absence would be a big blow to Kolkata Knight Riders as he is a crucial player and their captain. The extent of the injury and Iyer’s recovery time remain unclear, making it difficult to predict his availability for the IPL’s opening matches.

Iyer will likely prioritize his recovery and aim to be fit for the later stages of the IPL.

The team management might need to consider alternative options to lead the side in Iyer’s potential absence.

Further updates regarding the severity of the injury and Iyer’s potential return will be crucial as the IPL season approaches.
