“Shreyas Iyer complained of pain in his lower back following the third day’s play?. He has gone for scans and the BCCI Medical Team is monitoring him,” BCCI said in a medical update.
Iyer’s injury came to light after wicketkeeper-batter Srikar Bharat came out to bat ahead of him following the dismissal of Ravindra Jadeja (28) in the morning session.
Iyer had also missed the first Test in Nagpur due to a back issue before returning for the second game in Delhi.
India are leading the four-match series 2-1.
