Iyer has been dealing with this issue ever since his return from the Bangladesh series last December. Despite receiving multiple injections to ease the discomfort, the problem persisted and ultimately led to his decision to undergo surgery.

The surgery will be performed by a leading back specialist, and Iyer is expected to be under the surgeon’s care for two weeks before reporting to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for rehabilitation.

It remains to be seen how long it will take for Iyer to make a full recovery and return to action.
