It has to be noted that Iyer got injured during the England series and was ruled out of the remaining fixtures. In the same turn of events, he had to miss out on the first phase of the Indian Premier League which took place in India. Iyer was leading the Delhi Capitals till last year and in his absence, another talented youngster Rishabh Pant was given the responsibilities of the team.
However, as Iyer has completed his rehabilitation period after his shoulder surgery, he would be up in the IPL UAE leg that is all set to take place in September-October. Under the captaincy of Iyer, Delhi marked its maiden appearance in the finale of the IPL 2020 which entirely took in the UAE and was won by Mumbai Indians.
In the absence of Iyer, Pant was also doing a great job with the captaincy as Delhi was marching right on top of the points table before the IPL 2021 got suspended in India. DC have 12 points in the eight games they have played so far in IPL 2021.
