New Delhi: Team India star Shreyas Iyer has been selected as a standby player for the team of T20 World Cup to be held from October 17. At the same time, young player Rishabh Pant has been included in the 15-member team. Let us tell you that Iyer was the captain of Delhi before getting injured, after which this responsibility was entrusted to Pant. However, now Iyer has recovered from a shoulder injury, after which the question arises that who will captain Delhi?
Who will get the captaincy?
Iyer has also started preparing for the remaining matches of IPL 2021. However, as soon as he recovers, the tension of the fans must have increased because no information has come about who will be given the captaincy of Delhi. But there are speculations that Pant will remain the captain as he has handled the team well in the matches so far this season and changing the captain in the middle may not be right. In such a situation, there may be bad news for Iyer that he should not be given the captaincy again.
Pant was appointed captain in place of Iyer
In Iyer’s absence, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was made the captain of Delhi Capitals. When IPL 2021 was postponed indefinitely after the entry of Corona virus in the bio bubble, Delhi’s team was on top of the points table. In such a situation, now after Iyer’s recovery, Pant can be removed from the captaincy.
Shreyas Iyer was injured
26-year-old batsman Shreyas Iyer got injured during the series against England. He had an injury in his left shoulder, due to which he was also ruled out of IPL 2021.
IPL will start from September 17
IPL 2021, which was postponed due to Corona on May 4, will now be restarted in September and its final will be held in October. The remaining matches of IPL 2021 are going to start from September 17 and the final match can be played on October 15.
Delhi had missed the trophy last year
The team of Delhi Capitals led by Shreyas Iyer was the runners-up in IPL 2020. Even at that time the IPL was played in the UAE. Delhi lost to Mumbai Indians in the final.
