Delhi Capitals waiting for update on Iyer: Shreyas is now not only doubtful for the remaining ODI’s but also there is a huge question mark over his availability for IPL 2021.
The Delhi Capitals captain dived on a drive hit by Jonny Bairstow off pacer Shardul Thakur in the eighth over of England innings. The 26-year-old did not return to the field and as per BCCI, he had subluxated his left shoulder. Usually, it takes at least a month to recover from the injury and in some instances, surgery. He was taken for scans on Tuesday and DC will be waiting for an update.
With IPL 2021 scheduled to begin on April 9, Iyer is almost certain to miss out on a few matches or the entire tournament depending on the severity of his injury. Iyer with 519 runs from 17 matches was Delhi’s 2nd top-scorer after Shikhar Dhawan and his absence would hurt the team immensely.
