In the first ODI between India and England, the Indian star batsman and the captain of the Delhi Capitals Shreyas Iyer dislocated his shoulder while fielding for his side. He was right away taken off the field and following some medical checkups and scans it has been confirmed that he has been ruled out from the rest of the series and likely to miss the first half of the IPL 2021 as well.
Shreyas Iyer has been leading the Delhi Capitals from the front and under his captaincy, the team made it to the playoffs last year. However, for the rest of the series, it is highly certain that Suryakumar Yadav or Rishabh Pant would take his spot but for the Indian Premier League which would be taking place in April Shreyas Iyer’s absences can cost a lot. Soon after the news came out fans have started reacting to his miserable injury and also started discussing the possible options Delhi Capitals have to lead their side.
Have a look:
No this isn’t the possible batting line-up of Delhi Capitals. It’s the list of people who have the potential and credentials to be the Captain of Delhi Capitals in the absence of Shreyas Iyer.#ipl pic.twitter.com/kPihkd1Hf0

Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the remaining matches the #INDvENG ODI series because #ShreyasIyer dislocates his left shoulder. The loss of one is the opportunity of the other. Hope Surya kumarYadav will debut next match.

Big decisions for Delhi Capitals to make: will regular vice-captain Pant now be captain? Or go with an experienced captain in Ashwin/Rahane? Can make Smith too but that will block 1 overseas spot. Decisions, decisions. But get well soon, Shreyas. #IPL2021https://t.co/GJKWSuh1Mg

Iyer ruled out of England series. Also to miss first half of IPL. New leader for Delhi capitals in IPL at least for the initial stages.
Get well soon @ShreyasIyer15. 💐💐
Rohit injury not that bad. He may well be available for the next game.
