Pune: Shreyas Iyer will miss the IPL season after undergoing surgery due to injury. This raises the question of who will lead Delhi Capitals. There are reports that Rishabh Pant may be the next captain.
The Delhi squad includes senior players like Steve Smith, Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan and R Ashwin. They have experience leading franchises in the past. But there are indications that the Delhi Capitals want Rishabh to bring the ball to the captaincy.
Delhi Capitals may announce their new captain this week. Team co-owner Parth Jindal said Shreyas was injured. I am sure you will come back strong from this. "India needs you for the T20 World Cup," Parth Jindal tweeted.
Shreyas suffered a shoulder injury in the first ODI against England. Shreyas will lose at least four months if she has to undergo surgery. If surgery is not needed, it can return in 6-8 weeks. It is clear that Shreyas will lose this year's IPL
