After his injury, the BCCI had stated, "Shreyas Iyer subluxated (partially dislocated) his left shoulder in the 8th over while fielding. He has been taken for further scans".
Due to this injury, the 26-year-old batsman had pulled out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 as well.
After he was ruled out due to injury, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was named the Delhi Capitals captain for this year’s IPL. Prior to the injury, Iyer had signed a contract with England’s County Club Lancashire for 2021 Royal London Cup but will not be playing in the one-day tournament slated to start from 23 July.
It was Iyer who had led the DC team to IPL finals last year where they lost to Mumbai Indians (MI).
So far, Iyer has scored over 6,000 One-Day runs across his career. He has hit nine centuries. His average is just a little behind 45 in ODI cricket. Since his debut, he has scored 8 fifties and a century in ODIs. He has represented India over 50 times combined in ODI and T20I cricket.

The recent clip of his brief appearance has also gone viral in no time and has created much buzz across social media.
Rishabh Pant opened twice during India's UK tour in the limited-over matches, and made a strong case for himself at the position despite no prior domestic experience of playing at the slot.
Ravi Shastri had said during the 2018 South Africa tour that Shreyas Iyer will have to work hard on short-pitched deliveries.
