Delhi Capitals co-owner Parth Jindal confirmed about his unavailability in the Indian Premier League 2021. Iyer has to miss the entire season following an injury he sustained in the ODI against England on Tuesday.

Iyer to Miss IPL 2021

Shreyas Iyer suffered from a shoulder injury when he tried to stop the ball and dived on his left. He partially dislocated his shoulder and had to leave the ground immediately. Shibman Gill replaced him. Jindal who is a co-owner of Delhi Capitals informed via Twitter that Iyer will be missing the entire IPL. Iyer lead the franchise and took them to the final last year. “Absolutely devastated and gutted for our skipper @ShreyasIyer15 – stay strong captain – hope for a very quick recovery. Have full faith that you will come back even stronger from this. India needs you in the T20 World Cup ” Jindal tweeted.

Although the BCCI is yet to give an official statement, reportedly Iyer’s scan reports suggest that he might have to go for a surgery. While this means probable chance of Suryakumar Yadav’s ODI in the next match against England, for the Capitals this is not a great news. In Iyer’s absence, Rishab Pant who was the deputy of Iyer last year might take the charge of the team this year as captain. There is another option available in Shikhar Dhawan, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Steve Smith who might get the responsibility.

Not just as a leader, Delhi Capitals will miss the service of Shreyas Iyer, the batsman. Iyer ended as the second highest run-scorer for the side last year. Even in recently concluded T20I series, Iyer was in fine form against England. IPL 2021 will begin on April 9. The series opener will be played between the defending champions Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai. Delhi Capitals will play their first game against Chennai Super Kings in Mumbai a day later.
