Shreyas Iyer was reportedly suffering from back spasms but has recovered now and will be available for the Ranji Trophy semi-final next month.

Mumbai have named Shreyas Iyer in their 16-man squad for the Ranji Trophy 2024 semi-final clash with Tamil Nadu. Iyer was part of India squad for the first two Tests of the ongoing five-match series against England at home but wasn’t picked for the remaining games.

Mumbai entered the semifinals after their quarterfinal clash against Baroda ended in a draw at the BKC Ground, with the 41-time champions making it to the final four on the basis of first-innings lead.

Lacking big runs and struggling with a back-related issue again, the 29-year-old Iyer was not named in India’s squad for the last three Tests against England.

Iyer, subsequently, also missed Mumbai’s quarterfinal match along with all-rounder Shivam Dube.

The timing of Iyer pulling out of the key Ranji clash coincided with BCCI secretary Jay Shah announcing that a directive will be issued to players to compulsorily play domestic matches.

While Dube is on the mend having suffered a side strain issue, Iyer has recovered completely and will be available for the semifinal against Tamil Nadu.

Mumbai squad: Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw, Bhupen Lalwani, Amogh Bhatkal, Musheer Khan, Prasad Pawar, Hardik Tamore, Shardul Thakur, Shams Mulani, Tanush Kotian, Aditya Dhumal, Tushar Deshpande, Mohit Avasthi, Royston Dias, Dhawal Kulkarni.
