Shreyas Iyer is scheduled to get back surgery in London and will miss the WTC and IPL finals

Shreyas Iyer made the decision to undergo back surgery, which will keep him out of commission for at least three months. Iyer will travel to London to undergo surgery, a source close to him told Cricbuzz.

Similarly to Prasidh Krishna and Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya also traveled to London for surgery whereas Prasidh Krishna and Jasprit Bumrah went to New Zealand.

In contrast to the two pacers' injuries, which were stress fractures, the injury is thought to be disc-related. After considering every possible course of conservative treatment, Shreyas ultimately decided on surgery. His surgery time has not yet been scheduled.

Iyer is no longer eligible to compete in the IPL 2023, where he was scheduled to represent Kolkata Knight Riders. Moreover, he will be absent from the June 7 World Test Championship final at The Oval versus Australia.

Iyer had delayed the decision to have surgery, as initially reported by Cricbuzz, to see if he could have made any progress that would have allowed him to play some cricket soon. He has since chosen the course that would have him out of commission for a lengthier amount of time, contrary to the NCA's initial suggestion.

Those who have had back surgery say it can only make things better and is unquestionably a long-term solution, especially for people who experience frequent recurrence of the condition, as Iyer has over the past six months or so.

Iyer's back injury during practice forced him to miss the last Test against Australia in Ahmedabad. It turned out to be an ailment that had previously prevented him from playing in a white ball series against New Zealand.
