India vs New Zealand: Shreyas Iyer ruled out of ODI series | Cricket News



NEW DELHI: Team India batsman Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the 3-match ODI series against New Zealand due to a back injury and will be heading to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for further assessment and management.
“Team India batter Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the upcoming 3-match ODI series against New Zealand due to a back injury,” BCCI secretary Jay Shah said in a statement.
Rajat Patidar, who plays for Madhya Pradesh in the domestic circuit and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League, has been named as Iyer’s replacement for the rubber against the visiting Kiwis. Patidar has earlier been part of ODI team for past few series.
While he was one of India’s steady batsmen in ODIs in 2022, Shreyas Iyer failed to convert his starts in three games as scores of 28, 28 and 38 would suggest.
In Iyer’s absence, the indomitable Suryakumar Yadav will get at least three chances to cement his place in the side. Surya and Hardik Pandya in the middle order will surely add firepower at the back-end.
India play the first ODI against New Zealand in Hyderabad on 18th January, 2023.

India’s updated ODI squad against New Zealand: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (wk), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, KS Bharat (wk), Hardik Pandya (vice-captain), Rajat Patidar, Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohd. Shami, Mohd. Siraj, Umran Malik
