Shreyas Iyer is confident of representing Delhi Capitals in the remaining season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in the UAE. He said his recovery is in its final stages and it will now take him a month’s time to get match fitness.
The 26-year-old also clarified that he is not looking at the captaincy of the franchise, and it is up to the management to take that call before the action resumes in September.
Shreyas Iyer told The Grade Cricketer’s YouTube channel: “My shoulder… yes, I think the healing process is done. Now it’s the last stage of achieving strength and range. So that’s going to take about a month and the training is obviously going on. Other than that, I feel, I will be there in the IPL.
“I don’t know about the captaincy, it’s in the hands of the owners. But the team has already been doing well and we are on top and that’s what really matters to me. My main aim and goal to lift the trophy which Delhi has never done before.”
Shreyas went under the knife in April to fix his shoulder injury which he got during the India-England ODI series.
