The second leg of the 14th of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from September 19. Good news for the Delhi Capitals before the second leg of the IPL, team captain Shreyas Iyer has started batting practice. Iyer suffered a shoulder injury in a series of limited overs against England this year. After this he had to stay away from cricket for about three months. Iyer also had to undergo a shoulder operation that made him unable to play in the first phase of IPL 2021. In his absence, Rishabh Pant took command of the Delhi capitals. Only 29 matches have been played in IPL 2021 so far. IPL 2021 has to be postponed after the Kovid-19 cases emerged in the bio-bubble of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Delhi capital.
The remaining matches of the IPL 2021 will be played before the T20 World Cup. There are still 31 games to be played in IPL 2021. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has got a 21-day window to host the remaining matches of the IPL. In such a situation, more double-header matches will be seen in the second phase of IPL 2021. The full schedule of the remaining matches has not been released yet. The return of Iyer gives strength to the Delhi capitals. The team has performed well so far this season.
Last year’s IPL runners-up, this time the team wants to risk everything to win the title. Delhi tops the points table with six wins from eight matches so far. Shreyas Iyer has started batting practice three months later and he shared a video of it on his Instagram story. Shreyas Iyer has been inducted into the 45-member squad for the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) fitness camp on July 13.
