Here’s why Shreyas Iyer is not allowed to bowl despite clean action

Shreyas Iyer expressed his desire to bowl at the highest level for India, but he also disclosed the reasons he is unable to do so. The right-hander had back surgery earlier this year, due to which he had to miss a significant amount of time playing for his national team.

The 28-year-old Iyer claimed that the strength and conditioning coaches haven’t let him bowl because of his past history of injuries.

“I have been longing to bowl, but the strength and conditioning coaches, they are right ‘now you are not going to bowl for some time’. That’s the sad part of it,” Shreyas was quoted as saying on JioCinema after the match.

Shreyas has only bowled 7.3 overs in international cricket and has given away 43 runs. The youngster, however, is yet to pick up a wicket. In first-class, List A and T20 cricket, Shreyas has picked up 10 wickets.

Shreyas is now set to travel to South Africa where India will play a T20I, Test and ODI series.
