Pune: India batsman Shreyas Iyer was taken off the field and later taken for scans after he injured his left shoulder while fielding in the first ODI against England on Tuesday.
The incident happened in the eighth over of the England innings when Shreyas dived on a drive hit by Jonny Bairstow off pacer Shardul Thakur.
Shreyas looked in pain and walked off the field while holding his shoulder, raising concerns over his fitness ahead of the IPL beginning 9 April. He captains Delhi Capitals in the premier T20 event.
UPDATE - Shreyas Iyer subluxated his left shoulder in the 8th over while fielding. He has been taken for further scans and won't take any further part in the game.
