Iyer was one of the contenders for a middle-order batter’s slot along with Shubman Gill and KL Rahul. He has played 7 Test matches so far with an average of 56.72 at a healthy strike rate of 65. Iyer made his Test debut against New Zealand in Kanpur in November 2021. He was also the second-highest scorer for India against Bangladesh with 202 runs in three innings. Iyer’s absence might give all-rounder Suryakumar Yadav the chance to make his Test debut.

India vs Australia: India’s squad for the 1st Test: Rohit Sharma (capt), KL Rahul (vc), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, KS Bharat (wk), Ishan Kishan (wk), R Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat, Suryakumar Yadav
