However, the BCCI has not given an official statement regarding this. But according to the information about his injury in the scan, according to his surgery, he may have surgery. In his first ODI match, he suffered an injury to his left shoulder while fending off Beairstow’s stroke while fielding.
Suryakumar Yadav may get a chance to make his ODI debut in the second ODI due to Iyer being ruled out. Last season, Iyer led the Delhi Capitals to the finals. Although Mumbai Indians won the IPL for a record fifth time by beating the Delhi Capitals in the final, Rishabh Pant may captain the Delhi Capitals due to Iyer’s exit from the IPL.
He was the vice-captain of the team last year. However, the franchise also has other captaincy options in the form of Shikhar Dhawan, Ravichandran Ashwin and Steve Smith. These were chosen from the auction pool held last year. Significantly, Dhawan became the captain in the absence of Iyer in the UAE, when Pant was not playing eleven.
