IPL 2021: 3 players who are all set to miss the opening match of IPL 2021- With just a couple of weeks left for the IPL 2021, three key players are set to miss the opening match for their franchise. In shocking developments, Rajasthan Royals Jofra Archer, Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer will miss the opening match while RCB spinner Adam Zampa will be unavailable due to personal reason.
Shreyas Iyer (DC)
In an extremely unfortunate development for Delhi Capitals, Shreyas Iyer has badly dislocated his shoulder in the opening ODI against England on Tuesday. According to BCCI’s sources, Iyer will minimum be out from the side for the next 6-8 weeks. This means Delhi Capitals captain is now doubtful for IPL 2021.
“Shreyas Iyer subluxated his left shoulder in the 8th over while fielding,” BCCI said in a tweet post.
Jofra Archer (RR)
Archer returned to England for management and investigation for a right elbow injury that he sustained during the Test series. According to the ECB, Archer’s elbow issue has worsened during the recently concluded T20 series. The ECB medical team will assess the player and, together with Jofra, develop a treatment plan and a return-to-play schedule in due course. As a consequence, Jofra will miss the start of this year’s Indian Premier League.
Adam Zampa (RCB)
Australia leg-spinner Adam Zampa will be missing Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) first fixture in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 as he is getting married, confirmed Mike Hesson, franchise’s Director of Cricket.
“Zampa is getting married. It’s an important time for him and it’s something that as a franchise we are aware of and we respect and we hope he has a great time. So when he joins us, once again he is going to be fresh and make a massive contribution to the rest of the tournament,” Hesson said.
