Shreyas Iyer ruled out of Lancashire spell
Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of Lancashire’s upcoming Royal London Cup campaign
Following discussions between the Club and the BCCI, as well as the players’ representatives, it was agreed that Iyer would remain in India ahead of his return to cricket in due course.
Shreyas Iyer said: “I am gutted to not be able to play for Lancashire this summer, a Club that has such history and ambition. I hope to play at Emirates Old Trafford for Lancashire at some point in the future.”
Director of Cricket, Paul Allott said: “We are obviously very disappointed, as we were thoroughly looking forward to welcoming Shreyas to Emirates Old Trafford.
“Ultimately Shreyas’ long-term fitness is of paramount importance and Lancashire Cricket fully respects the decision.
“We wish Shreyas all the best with the remainder of his recovery, and from the conversations which I have had with the player, believe that this is an arrangement he would be keen to revisit again in the future.”
