Indian batsman Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the upcoming Royal London Cup in England as he continues to recover from his shoulder injury. Earlier this year, Lancashire signed Iyer as an overseas player for the 50-over tournament.
Iyer was supposed to reach Manchester on July 15 and take part in the group stage of the Royal London Cup 2021, but due to the shoulder injury he sustained during the home series against England, he was ruled out.
‘I’m fed up with not being able to play for Lancashire this summer, a club with such a history and ambition. I hope to play for Lancashire at Emirates Old Trafford at some point in the future. ” Iyer said Monday.
However, Iyer confirmed that he would play in the remaining matches of IPL 2021 in the United Arab Emirates, adding his franchise Delhi Capitals (DC) will decide on the captaincy. Iyer was forced to skip the initial phase of IPL 2021 in India before it was postponed in May due to the rising COVID-19 cases in the biobubble.
‘My shoulder … yes, I think the healing process is done. This is now the last phase to reach power and reach. It will therefore take about a month and the training will of course continue. Other than that, I feel like I will be there in the IPL, ” Iyer told The Grade Cricketer’s YouTube channel.
‘I do not know about the captaincy, it’s in the hands of the owners. But the team has done well already and we are at the top and that is what really matters to me. My main goal and purpose is to lift the trophy that Delhi has never done before. ‘
Iyer underwent a successful operation on his shoulder in April. It was then reported that he still needs at least three months to return to competitive cricket. As a result, Iyer was excluded from the limited series against Sri Lanka.
