Shreyas out of ODI series
But just before this series, T Dileep has revealed in the press conference that Shreyas Iyer will not be able to play in the ODI series against Australia.

Shreyas was injured in the Ahmedabad Test
Please tell that Shreyas did not bat in the fourth Test against Australia. After fielding for two consecutive days in the Ahmedabad Test, Shreyas complained of swelling in his lower back. He also bowled one over during this period. Instead of Shreyas, Rajat Patidar or Rahul Tripathi can be included in the team in the ODI series.
At present, Shreyas Iyer is under the supervision of the BCCI medical team at NCA. Indian captain Rohit Sharma also gave an update about Shreyas’s injury after the fourth test.
