IND vs AUS, 1st ODI: With not much clarity on when Shreyas Iyer would be able to return, the Indian team management has started to look for solutions in a bid to keep its preparation on course for the ODI World Cup, to be held in India later this year.

The rush of lower reverse pain has ruled Shreyas Iyer out of action for a while. The batter won’t only be missing the three- match ODI series against Australia but is also a doubtful starter for the Indian Premier League.

With not important clarity on when he’d be suitable to return, the Indian platoon operation has started to look for results in a shot to keep its medication on course for the ODI World Cup, to be held in India latterly this time.

“(There’s) no timeline, we’ve to hope for the stylish to wish him a speedy recovery. I’ve been in that situation where back could be a problem. We’ll miss him but we’ve to find results if he isn’t around. However, he’s of course welcome, ” said Hardik Pandya, If he is. “ There’s a lot of time to suppose about how we can go forward ”

For the record, the ODI World Cup is still seven months down, but in a shot to end the title hex, the Board had before decided to consecrate a pool of 20 contenders for the ICC event. But with no clarity over Jasprit Bumrah’s possible return, post-surgery in New Zealand, the platoon operation has been forced to relook at its pace bowling department.

“There’s no long term plan as similar. Jassi hasn’t been around for a relatively some time now. The bowling group has been doing a decent job. They ’re all endured now with the number of games they’ve played. Having Jassi makes a massive difference but to be veritably honest, we aren’t much bothered because the guys who have taken the part of Jassi, I’m relatively confident they ’ll be doing veritably well, ” Pandya said, “ It gives us good confidence ”

Soon after retaining the Border- Gavaskar jewel, captain Rohit Sharma had said that the workload of the players, who’ll feature in the World Test Championship final against Australia in June- shortly after the IPL- will be covered. But will there be a analogous plan in place for the core players, who are anticipated to be part of the ODI World Cup?

“That isn’t my call. We’ve to have faith in our S&Cs. I’m a joe who trusts his platoon. These calls of workload, who should play when, who shouldn’t play are fully on guys who are professionals and it’s their call, ” Pandya said.

“All these guys are confident that if they miss out on some matches, also they miss out. It’s okay. That’s the confidence we have. However, this operation has shown confidence and trust in the players, If someone misses out because of workload operation. I suppose that’s the reason players who have gone out have come back with a lot of security, ” he added.

He, still, indicated that in the three- match series, he’s ready to drift the share of overs, if needed.

Pandya also revealed that Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill will be opening the innings for India in Mumbai, in the absence of regular captain and nature Rohit. “ Ishan and Shubman will be opening. The gate looks how it’s throughout the time. I’ve played then for nearly seven times and it’s one of the finest grounds I’ve played on. It’s going to be grueling since this gate will give equal openings to both sides, ” Pandya said.

With the Indian Test platoon qualifying for the WTC final, Pandya was asked if he’d like to be part of the platoon for the final at The Oval. But the seasoned contender brushed it away, saying, “ No. I’m an immorally veritably strong person. I haven’t done 10 per cent to reach there. I’m not indeed a part of 1 per cent. So me coming there and taking someone’s place will immorally not go well. ”

Still, I ’ll go through the grind and earn my spot, “ If I want to play Test justice. Hence, for that reason I’ll not be available for the WTC final or unborn Test series until I do n’t feel that I’ve earned my spot. ” Know More Latest Cricket News…
