Shreyas Iyer To Miss IPL 2021 Due To Shoulder Injury
Shreyas Iyer ruled out of IPL 2021 after suffering shoulder injury with India
Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the 2021 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The reason being the shoulder injury that he suffered during the first ODI between India and England. Iyer had suffered a subluxation of his left shoulder while fielding and had been taken for scans.
Cricinfo says that Iyer, will undergo surgery to his left shoulder and is likely to be out of cricket for at least a few months. Looks like Shreyas Iyer is set to miss the entire IPL 2021.
On Wednesday, he was ruled out of the remainder of the series. On Thursday it was confirmed that Iyer will miss the entirety of IPL 2021 as well. Delhi Capitals chairman Parth Jindal tweeted that he was “absolutely devastated” for Iyer and wished him a speedy recovery.
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. @DelhiCapitals @BCCI

IPL 2021 kicks off on April 9, with defending champions Mumbai Indians taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai. Delhi Capitals will play their first game against Chennai Super Kings in Mumbai a day later.
Shreyas had led Delhi Capitals to the final in the previous edition of the IPL. A big blow for the Capitals, as they lost the captain who led them to their maiden IPL final last year.
