Shreyas Iyer updates his fans on his injury “I’ll be back in no time”
Few days back, it was bad news for Indian cricket team & Delhi Capitals as Shreyas Iyer got injured during a match against England. It was disheartening news for him & his fans as well as he will miss the complete season of IPL 2021.
A good news which came in yesterday from Iyer’s social media account that he underwent successful surgery on his shoulder and will be “back in no time”.
“Surgery was a success and with lion-hearted determination, I’ll be back in no time. Thank you for your wishes,”Iyer tweeted.
Having played a fairly average series of knocks in the India vs England T20I series in March 2021, Shreyas Iyer went into the teams’ ODI series with scores of 67, 8*, 9 and 37. With just 6 runs to his name as the second innings of the 1st ODI rolled around and looking to contribute to the side in other ways, Iyer took a daring dive to stop what would have been a certain boundary off the bat of English batsman Jonny Bairstow. While to the relief of bower Shardul Thakur, Iyer did manage to stop the boundary, his landing did not stick well. Going by his immediate reaction after the fall, it was clear that the batsman was in tremendous pain. Clutching his shoulder, Iyer was escorted off the field and taken for scans where it was revealed that he had partially dislocated his left shoulder during the move. Not only did this rule Iyer out of the rest of the India vs England series (which India won with a commanding 2-1 margin), it also meant that he would need to rehabilitate his shoulder for at least the next four months.
In absence of Iyer, Delhi Capitals gave Rishabh Pant an opportunity to lead Delhi Capitals for the whole season.
