‘You Are Actually Making A Position For Shreyas Iyer’, Harbhajan Singh Raised Question On NCA For Frequent Injury Of Players

According to former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, Shreyas Iyer’s ongoing injury issues ahead of the World Cup could provide KL Rahul a high chance to assert his position in the playing XI of the ODI World Cup.

Shreyas was out from the team for several months due to his lower back injury. The batter returned in the Indian squad for the Asia Cup 2023. Not only this, he returned to action during India’s first Asia Cup 2023 match against Pakistan in Pallekele on September 2. However, he was forced to sit out of India’s Super 4 encounter against Pakistan in Colombo on Sunday due to a recurrence of back spasms.

Rahul is also returning from a thigh injury and he took the place of Shreyas Iyer in the playing XI for the match against Pakistan. In a conversation on Sports Today, Harbhajan expressed the view that Shreyas’ recurring injury problems will provide KL Rahul with a more favorable opportunity for the world cup.

“Injuries are part and parcel of the game. But getting injured that often, it’s either your bad luck or you are actually making a position for KL Rahul. I think getting injured at this point of time will put a lot of things right for KL Rahul. Obviously, nobody wants to get injured, but this opportunity with open a big door for someone like KL Rahul. What Rahul will bring to the table is stability to the batting line-up,” Harbhajan said.

Harbhajan Singh also said that players getting injured at this frequent level is really a thing to worry about and the National Cricket Academy(NCA) must look into the matter.

“It’s something to do with the kind of training that they do or with the kind of effort that they put in. That is the question that the NCA needs to answer because that’s where everyone goes and trains themselves and gets ready for the games,” he added.
