The injury concerns have usually kept prominent players outside of the big tournaments and series, and the prime example was Shreyas Iyer. The player who was also the captain of the Delhi Capitals team injured himself while playing for the Indian team in the ODI series against England earlier in the year. After undergoing scans, he was advised a complete bed rest of 3 months. But, the latest news would cheer Shreyas Iyer fans a bit.
The Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer has regained full fitness and has got clearance to play in the IPL 2021 Phase 2. The Indian Premier League Phase 2 will be played from 19 September to 15 October. The batter undertook rehab programme in the Bandra Kurla Complex and after the intense fitness test has been cleared by National cricket Academy.
“Yes, NCA has issued a fit certificate to Shreyas. He stayed in Bengaluru at the NCA for a week and his final assessment has happened few days back. Based on all medical and physical parameters, he is now ready to play matches.”
“This couldn’t have happened at a better time with India’s T20 World Cup campaign in two months time,” a senior BCCI source said to PTI.
The middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer who is a regular member of the limited-overs side of the Indian team will now be in contention for the place in the T20 World Cup 2021 Squad.
With Sanju Samson failing to contribute, Shreyas Iyer will most likely be given a go-ahead due to his experience and track record along with Suryakumar Ydav and Ishan Kishan as the middle-order options as well.
