The second leg of the Indian Premier League is all set to start from September 19. In the UAE leg of the Indian Premier League, Rishabh Pant is likely to continue as the skipper of the Delhi Capitals. Pant was asked to lead the side in the first leg of the IPL 2021 as Shreyas Iyer was ruled of the tournament owing to a shoulder injury.
He was injured during the series against England at home. However, Iyer has recovered from his injury and has joined Delhi Capitals.
According to sources, Rishabh Pant is likely to captain Delhi Capitals for the remaining matches of the season.
“While it is great news that Shreyas Iyer is fit again and ready to get back to action, it is understood that the DC management wants to give him more time to recover. As a result, Pant will continue as captain, but only for the second half of IPL 2021,” a source informed as reported by CricFit.
Shreyas Iyer is all set to take the field for his IPL franchise. “Currently, I am feeling amazing, the journey was awesome, to be honest. I never hesitated for a while but right after the injury, I was sulking a bit and I didn’t know exactly what to do. I went into the dressing room and cried and it took me a while to digest it but yeah, at the end of the day, you need to go through all of it,” he said.
