IPL 2021 – Shreyas Iyer undergoes surgery on left shoulder


The batsman partially dislocated his shoulder during the first ODI against England, ruling him out of the IPL

Shreyas Iyer has undergone a scheduled surgery to his left shoulder, which he partially dislocated when he landed awkwardly after putting in a dive in the field during the first ODI of India’s home series against England last month. In a tweet, Iyer called the surgery “a success”, and promised to “be back in no time”.

Once the severity of the injury became clear, Iyer had to be ruled out of the IPL, where he was the designated captain of the Delhi Capitals. Rishabh Pant has since been handed the reins of the team, which plays its first match of IPL 2021 on Saturday, in Mumbai against the Chennai Super Kings.
