IPL 2023: The countdown to IPL 2023 has started. Cricket fans around the world will be watching this great league from the 31st of this month. But before the start of the IPL, some bad news has emerged for the Kolkata Knight Riders team. Let us tell you that this team is in danger of losing its captain in the IPL.
Danger looms over KKR
KKR captain Shreyas Iyer is in danger of being ruled out of IPL 2023. Iyer picked up an injury in the latest Border-Gavaskar Trophy Test and has also been ruled out of the upcoming ODI series. At the same time, there is a danger that this player will also be left out of the IPL. Indian team captain Rohit Sharma has also given a major update on Iyer’s injury.
Rohit gave bad signs
Rohit Sharma said that Shreyas Iyer does not look in good shape at the moment as he has recovered from a lower back injury. Rohit has no news on when Iyer will be able to return to cricket. Iyer finds it difficult to play in the IPL apart from the three-match ODI series against Australia, starting on March 17, in which he leads the Kolkata Knight Riders.
When Rohit was asked about Iyer’s physical condition, he said that what happened to him was unfortunate. He had to wait all day to hit and then, when he finished the game for the day, his back problem flared up again. He was sent to the hospital for a scan. He said: “I don’t know the exact scan report, but it looks like it’s not in a good condition. That is the reason why he is not here.
Who will be the captain?
If Iyer is out of IPL 2023, then the biggest question will be who will captain KKR in his place. For this, the biggest name of Shakib Al Hasan comes to the fore. Shakib has a long experience as a captain and has also captained Bangladesh on the international stage.
