Delhi Capitals have had the most number of injuries in IPL 2020. Ishant Sharma, Amit Mishra, Rishabh Pant and even R.Ashwin have or had got injuries during the tournament. Their captain Shreyas Iyer now has joined the injury list. Iyer ended up hurting his shoulder while trying to stop the ball and had to leave the field due to severe pain. How severe is his injury? Will he be fit for the next game? DC fans might be having a mor of questions in their head right now.

 

Delhi Capitals might have won the game against Rajasthan Royals here at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday, but the team suffered a blow as skipper Shreyas Iyer suffered an injury and walked off the field. Speaking after the game, stand-in captain Shikhar Dhawan said that Iyer is in pain and they will get to know about the complete picture after the reports come tomorrow. Shreyas is in a bit of pain. We will know more tomorrow. His shoulder is moving, touch wood. I am glad that we won this game,” said Dhawan during the post-match presentation via host broadcaster Star Sports.
With Shreyas Iyer getting injured, Delhi Capitals have suffered a major blow as Rishabh Pant is already out for a while with a Grade 1 tear. The wicket-keeper batsman on Friday limped his way to complete the catch off Varun Aaron’s bat as DC celebrated an emphatic win over Rajasthan Royals at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Earlier on Monday, DC had requested the IPL authorities for a replacement for fast bowler Ishant Sharma after he was ruled out of the tournament. Before that, leg-spinner Amit Mishra was ruled out of the IPL as he hurt the ring finger on his bowling hand.

 

Delhi Capitals (DC) returned to the top of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 standings with a close yet convincing victory over Rajasthan Royals (RR). The match also gave a headache to the DC team management which has already been struggling with the absence of key players through injuries. Shreyas Iyer becomes DC’s second player after Rishabh Pant who’s availability remains a doubt for their next match.
