If one of the top 15 players of the T20 World Cup (T20 WC) is ruled out of the tournament due to injury, then it is possible for Shreyas Iyer to get a chance.

Mumbai’s 26-year-old batsman Shreyas Iyer started his international cricket career for the Indian team in the year 2017. Talking about the captaincy, Iyer was appointed as the captain of the Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) team in IPL 2018.
