“Surgery was a success and with lion-hearted determination, I’ll be back in no time. Thank you for your wishes,” Shreyas Iyer wrote in his tweet.

In the first of the 3-match ODI series played against England on March 23, Shreyas Iyer tried a dive to stop the ball from attaining the boundary while fielding at the covering.

While he achieved in his attempt to get his fingertips on the ball, he ended up giving his shoulder a massive jolt, in the end displacing it partially from its position. Subsequent scans ruled Shreyas Iyer out of action for at least six to eight weeks and revealed the injury necessary surgery.

Shreyas Iyer’s county stint with Lancashire doubtful

Shreyas Iyer will not be a part of the Indian Premier League (IPL) this year due to shoulder surgery. In his absence, Rishabh Pant will lead the team this season.

Speaking about Pant replacing him as skipper, Iyer earlier added:

“When I sustained the shoulder injury, and the Delhi Capitals needed a leader for this edition of the IPL, I had no doubt that Rishabh Pant would be the best man for the job. He has all my good wishes to make this an amazing season with our absolutely incredible team. I’m going to miss the team tremendously and will be cheering for them throughout.”

Shreyas Iyer‘s absence will leave an important void in DC’s batting line-up. He scored 519 runs in 17 games the previous year and guided them to the finals.
The injury also puts Shreyas Iyer’s county stint after this year in doubt. The 26-year-old recently inked a deal with Lancashire and was slated to render them in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

Since there is insecurity about how long he will take to make a full recovery, the Lancashire team is promising that Shreyas Iyer will be available for them in a few months as of now. A couple of days, they took to Twitter to wish Shreyas Iyer a fast recovery.
