With his consistent good performances, Shreyas Iyer has been a regular member of Indian team in the limited-overs format for the last one year. Iyer sustained a shoulder injury in March due to which he was ruled out of IPL 2021. Iyer was injured during the first ODI against England itself and hence could not play in the ODIs.
However, he batted very well in T20Is. He scored 121 runs in 4 innings at an average of 40. He also smashed a fifty in one of the games at a crucial stage. Also, in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2020-21, Iyer smashed 2 centuries and scored 260 runs in 4 matches. So Shreyas Iyer will be a crucial player for India during the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka.
