Shreyas Iyer, India’s limited-overs specialist, says it will take a long time for him to return to competitive cricket as he has not yet fully recovered from shoulder surgery. Iyer had to return to competitive cricket representing the Lancashire side at the Royal London Cup, but he had to step back as he failed to recover from injury.

Iyer’s left shoulder was injured in an ODI against England in Pune earlier this year. This was followed by surgery in the UK. Iyer has recently started net practice, but it is understood that he is still a long way from achieving the required fitness for the tournament, which runs from July 22 to August 18.
