It has now been found that the DC skipper will be examined again next week and the date of the operation will be set after that. “While it is confirmed that he would have an operation, Shreyas would be examined by the surgeon next week and the date of the operation set after that. The operation would take place in about 10 to 14 days,” the ANI reported.
While Iyer’s decision to have surgery means he’ll miss the 2021 IPL, the batsman has vowed to come back stronger. On Twitter, Iyer wrote, “I’ve read your messages and I was blown away with all the love and support. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart to everyone. You know what they are saying the bigger the setback.” The stronger the comeback. I’ll be back soon. “
Parth Jindal, co-owner of Delhi Capitals, wished Skipper Iyer a speedy recovery. “Absolutely devastated and disappointed for our skipper @ ShreyasIyer15 – stay a strong captain – hope for a very quick recovery. Have full confidence that you will come back even stronger. India needs you at the T20 World Cup”, tweeted Jindal.
