Shreyas Iyer says “It was difficult for me to adapt to the fact that I was injured” in IPL 2021. Shreyas Iyer enjoyed a productive return to competitive cricket. After a long injury layoff in the Delhi Capitals’ opening game in UAE. He scored an unbeaten 47 as the 2020 runners-up sealed an eight-wicket win.

Iyer admitted that he initially found it difficult to accept. Also, it would be unable to play competitively.
“I have a very close-knit family and friends. They never made me feel that I was going through an injury. Firstly, you know when I got injured, it was really difficult for me. Also, to adapt to the fact that I injure because I keep doing so many activities here and there. And I never think about that situation and that happened. So it was really tough for me to adapt,” Iyer said.
The talented batsman admits the efforts of his family members. Also, a friend helped him through the troubles in the IPL games.
“But as I mentioned earlier, close-knit families and friends really kept me busy. They kept me in a positive frame of mind and never made me. Also feel that you know I’m going through an injury. But when the rehab started and I started gaining strength, that feeling was really amazing. And that put me in a really good frame of mind that I will come back positive and strong,” he added.
Lastly, Shreyas Iyer will look to rack up runs on a consistent basis. Also, in the remaining matches of the season. He intends to his reclaim his position in the pecking order. Also, his shoulder injury and the consequent recovery period meant Iyer. It is lost its place in India’s squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
