Shreyas Iyer Shoulder Surgery of Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer Shoulder Surgery will be on 8 April. He suffered an injury during fielding in the first ODI between India and England in Pune. He fell shoulder to shoulder on the ground to save the chowka. He had to be out of the series due to a serious injury. Initially, surgery was not considered as the first option, but after examination by doctors, it was found that his injury is deep and there is no option other than surgery. The biggest loss of Shreyas’s injury has been to his IPL team Delhi Capitals. Now he will not be part of the team in the 14th season of IPL (IPL 2021), starting on April 9.According to the Sports Today report, initially, there were reports that Shreyas would not play in the first half of the IPL. But undergoing left shoulder surgery means that he will have to stay away from the field for at least four to five months. In this Surat, apart from the IPL, he has also dropped out of Team India’s tour of England in August. At the same time, there is doubt about his playing in the proposed domestic T20 series against South Africa and New Zealand in September. However, a decision on this will be made only after his rehab.
Delhi team searching for Shreyas option
The challenge before the Delhi team is to find an alternative to Shreyas as a batsman and captain. Shikhar Dhawan, R Ashwin, Rishabh Pant, and Steve Smith are the players who can be replaced as captain of the team. However, the Delhi team management has not yet decided which of these players will entrust the captaincy responsibility. However, Pant is already the vice-captain of the team. In this case, his claim of captaincy is strong, but not having experience is the biggest obstacle in his path. Only a week is left for the league to start. In such a situation, the team has only counting days left to choose the new captain.
Delhi Capitals had played the final of the last IPL.
Let us know that last year Delhi Capitals played the final of the IPL under the captaincy of Shreyas. Then he was defeated by the Mumbai Indians by five wickets in the title war. In the final, Shreyas played an unbeaten 65-run captaincy inning for Delhi. At the same time, Pant also scored 56 runs.
