Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli marked their return to T20I cricket as they were included in the Indian cricket team squad for the upcoming three-match series against Afghanistan. However, notable by his absence was Shreyas Iyer, who had showcased strong form during the Cricket World Cup 2023 and had participated in both the ODI and Test series against South Africa. His exclusion from the Afghanistan series squad came as a surprise to fans and experts alike.

As per reports, the selectors reportedly expressed dissatisfaction with Iyer’s batting style during the recently concluded Test series. Additionally, the report suggested that Shreyas Iyer’s decision to opt for a holiday instead of playing Ranji Trophy matches for Mumbai did not sit well with the team management.

After being left out of the squad, Shreyas Iyer has been included in the Mumbai team and is gearing up to participate in the Ranji Trophy match against Andhra scheduled from January 12-15.

This presents an ideal chance for Shreyas to recover from his difficulties faced during the series against South Africa and establish a compelling position for himself, especially considering the upcoming five-match Test series against England commencing on January 25.

Iyer has taken the place of middle-order batter Sarfaraz Khan, who is set to join the India A squad for the series against England A in Ahmedabad.
