The injury occurred during India’s first ODI against England on March 23. Iyer suffered a subluxation in his left shoulder during commissioning. He was left out of the series, and it was later announced that he would miss the 2021 IPL.
In his absence, goaltender-batsman Rishabh Pant has been named DC’s pending captain.
Despite the presence of big stars, the absence of Iyer is still a big blow for Delhi. The talismanic cricketer led them to their first IPL final last year.
During the IPL 2020, DC finished the league phase in second place. But their fairytale journey was ended by the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the final.
The 2021 IPL is set to start on April 9, with the reigning MI champion set to face the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
Meanwhile, DC will have its first game on April 10, when it faces Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
