Former chief selection champion MSK Prasad felt that Shreyas Iyer is unlucky to be absent from the Indian squad battles despite doing really well prior to the injury he sustained. Shreyas Iyer was banned from the first phase of the 2021 IPL with the shoulder surgery he had to undergo and he has just started practicing by doing some fitness exercises.

In the meantime, India has already played its last limited overs games before the T20 World Cup against Sri Lanka and selected many youngsters to play with the seniors in Great Britain for the five-game test series against England. After a long time in the three-game T20I series, Sri Lanka finally managed to win a bilateral series against India and there were already doubts about the quality of the offspring.

MSK Prasad believes the Sri Lanka series was just a reveal

MSK Prasad assumes that Covid-19 has burdened the Indian side Sri Lanka and everyone remembered that it wasn’t full strength. He felt it was just for the teenagers and wasn’t very worried about the results. He added that the main team is in England and that he couldn’t win anything from the series.

“You have to accept the fact that we didn’t play with a full team and that some of these players were also affected by Covid. It was just a reveal, it was like a test run for our guys at this level, that’s all. I don’t see any real meaning in this series. “

“You don’t really need to worry about the outcome of this series. This is not an Indian team, this is an India A or India B team. 80 percent of the boys play there [in England]so I really don’t foresee anything from this series. ” MSK Prasad stated.

MSK Prasad worries about Shreyas Iyer’s future

MSK Prasad wasn’t sure if T Natrajan would find a place in the strong Indian close bowling attack and felt sorry for the injured Shreyas Iyer, who had done very well in the England series until he was out for 6 months due to an injury. Iyer hasn’t had much playing time and his selection on the Indian team will depend on his performance in the second phase of the 2021 IPL.

“As for Nattu, you’ve got enough pace bowler already, so I doubt if he would have found a place. Bumrah, Bhuvi, Shami and Mohammed Siraj are doing so well, Hardik Pandya is the backup bowler, so where is the seat? But I feel sorry for Shreyas because he caught up really well and slowly established his place in 11th. The injury happened at a very wrong time “, MSK Prasad closed.
