IPL 2021 – How Shreyas Iyer injured his shoulder?
“Shreyas Iyer subluxated (partially dislocated) his left shoulder in the 8th over while fielding. He has been taken for further scans and won’t take any further part in the game,” said the BCCI in a medical update.
“Rohit Sharma was hit on the right elbow while batting and felt some pain later. He won’t take the field,” it added.
Shreyas looked in pain and walked off the field while holding his shoulder, raising concerns over his fitness ahead of the IPL in which he captains Delhi Capitals.
The Mumbaikar had perished for just 6 while batting.
Shreyas had led Delhi Capitals to the final in the previous edition of the league.
It could take as much as six weeks to recover from shoulder dislocation and much longer in case a surgery is required.
