Why isn’t Shreyas Iyer playing at IPL 2021?
Shreyas Iyer was part of the Team India squad for the England series which ended last month. During the 1st ODI, Iyer dove to save a border from the start of Jonny bairstow and dislocated his shoulder in the process.
He had to undergo surgery and will stay away from cricket for the next 4-5 weeks. Iyer is expected to recover in time to be available for selection for the Indian team for the T20I World Cup.
However, injury will prevent Shreyas Iyer from making the 2021 IPL. Young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh pants was named team captain in Iyer’s absence.
The Delhi Capitals play their first 2021 IPL game against the Chennai Super Kings. It will be fascinating to see if the young side of DC or the seasoned veterans of CSK prevail.
