The young batsman has been brought in as cover for India captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli/" target="_blank">Virat Kohli</a>, who picked up an injury while fielding in the third Test at Ranchi. While he opted out of fielding in the first innings, he batted just to score 6 runs. However, there is no concrete news on Kohli being completely fit to play in the crucial final fixture. Reports suggest that Iyer will join Indian team at Dharamsala on Friday. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/australia-in-india-2016-17-200444/live-scores/india-vs-australia-4th-test-match-182439-summary.html" target="_blank">Live cricket score: India vs Australia, 4th Test</a> <p></p> <p></p>An insider from Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) revealed to <em>EspnCricinfo</em>, "It made sense to have a back-up batsman because in case of a contingency it is very difficult to reach a place like Dharamsala. We will know more on Virat tomorrow." Iyer has impressed one and all with his technically sound batting. Among his recent knocks is a double-hundred scored for India A against Australia in the practice match of this series. He had also scored a century for India A in the practice match against Bangladesh, which marks his consistency in the longest format. <p></p> <p></p>The series is squared so far, with Australia and India winning the first two Tests respectively and the third Test ending up in a draw. The final Test will be the decider and, if picked, Iyer will find a big platform to showcase his talent. However, India will not want to miss out on their skipper Kohli in a crucial match as this, which starts on Saturday.
