'Bhaag bhaag bhaag aaya sher aaya sher': Surya reacts to Shreyas Iyer's heartwarming post ahead of comeback
Team India's 17-person Asia Cup team was named a few days ago. The best news for them was that Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul, two of the most important players in the middle order for the Men in Blue in ODIs, were both back.
Iyer hasn't played since March because his back injury got worse, and Rahul hurt his hamstring during IPL 2023. The management, staff, and fans were all on the edge of their seats about whether or not they would play in the continental event.
But when they were both put on the team, it was a big relief for everyone who liked the Indian team. Now, a few days later, Shreyas Iyer shared a post from the NCA that thanked everyone who helped him get better and get back on the pitch.
"It's been a long road, but I'm very thankful for the people who helped me get to where I am now. Thank you to Nitin brother, Rajini sir, and everyone else at The NCA who has helped me so much. Much love and much appreciation," Iyer wrote in a touching post when he shared the photo with physiotherapist Nitin Patel and trainer Rajnikant.
Suryakumar Yadav was quick to cheer up his Mumbai teammate by singing the lyrics to a famous song from the movie "Gully Boy": "Bhaag bhaag bhaag aaya sher aaya sher." But he still had more to do. Surya posted a different comment on Instagram. It said, "Bolde unko wapas mat bulaana (Tell them not to call you again)."
Iyer has been given the all-clear, but the top selector Ajit Agarkjjar said that KL Rahul recently hurt his back and might not be able to play in the first game against Pakistan on September 2.
"Shreyas has been given a clean bill of health. Rahul has gotten a niggle in the last few days, which is not related to his original injury.
This is why Sanju will be going with the team. But the physio…I'm sure there will be an official comment, but we expect him to be fully healthy at some point in the Asia Cup, if not in the first game, then in the second or third. But he is on the right track," said the top selector for the BCCI.
