Shreyas Iyer is not undergoing back surgery now, know why he is not choosing this path?
Indian batsman Shreyas Iyer is not currently undergoing back surgery. He has been advised for surgery, but there are also chances that he will get relief from rest and rehab. He wants to play the World Cup.
Team India batsman Shreyas Iyer has been advised to undergo back surgery, due to which he was worried. In such a situation, it was coming to the fore that Shreyas Iyer may soon leave for London and get his surgery done by the experts there, but now it is reported that Shreyas Iyer is not getting the operation done in the recent times. He himself has taken this decision.
If reports are to be believed in Cricbuzz, the India batsman has decided not to opt for surgery for the time being and will instead rest and rehab for a few more days before taking a major decision on the treatment. Surgery is very difficult. In such a situation, the National Cricket Academy (NCA) based in Bengaluru has also recommended that the player himself take a decision on this.
The NCA says the player himself wants to see if the injury can be managed without surgery at this stage. Both the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Indian team management are being kept in the loop. The decision-makers will now see whether Kolkata Knight Riders captain Iyer can participate at any stage during the IPL, starting March 31.
Although his participation in the first match is not possible, no official decision has been taken on him till Thursday (March 23). More than IPL, Iyer is believed to be keen to be a part of India’s campaign in the World Cup and if he chooses the surgical route, he will be out of action for at least six-seven months.

There is no guarantee that he can return to competitive cricket till October-November when the World Cup will happen. Cricbuzz also confirmed last week that Mumbai-based spine specialist Abhay Nene had asked him to take rest for 10 days. After expert advice, he is currently at home in Mumbai. Now it has to be seen how his back is after the next few days.
