India Tour Of Sri Lanka: BIG UPDATE On Shreyas Iyer’s ‘India Comeback’

Shreyas Iyer in India tour of Sri Lanka: Team India’s out-of-favor batter Shreyas Iyer, who led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to their third IPL title this year, is reportedly set to make a comeback to the Indian cricket team during India’s tour to Sri Lanka.

Controversy arose when Iyer was excluded from the BCCI central contract list. However, his exceptional performances in IPL 2024 have bolstered his chances for upcoming India’s tour to Sri Lanka. There is now speculation that Iyer could make his return to the Indian squad under the leadership of Gautam Gambhir, should the former India opener assume the role of head coach of Team India.
