Veteran spinner Amit Mishra in a recent interview has said that the return of Shreyas Iyer will be a huge boost for Delhi Capitals for their remaining IPL 2021 campaign. Led by Rishabh Pant in the first half of the tournament, the side finished at the top of the points table before the season was postponed. Delhi were on 12 points from 8 games with a healthy net-run rate of 0.547.
Shreyas Iyer will return as the skipper of the side after recovering from his shoulder injury. He went for a surgery back in April after injuring his left shoulder in the series against England. As a result, he had to miss the first phase of IPL 2021. Shreyas Iyer is currently training at the NCA and is expected to regain full fitness ahead of resumption of IPL 2021 in September.
Delhi Capitals Is a Combination Of Youth & Experience: Amit Mishra
In an interview with JK 24×7 News, Amit Mishra spoke about the return of Shreyas Iyer and his side’s chances of winning the title when the season resumes in the UAE.
“The best thing about Delhi Capitals is the combination of youth and experience. We have the likes of Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer in the youth section. I think Iyer has been recovering well, and he will likely be available for the second phase of IPL 2021. So, it will be a big plus point for us” said Mishra.
Amit Mishra was one of the Indian players who tested positive which forced the IPL season to be postponed. He also updated on his health. He said that he did not have too many symptoms and he recovered within a week.
“Yes, I have fully recovered. Luckily, I had very few symptoms, which is why I had almost recovered in a week. But the medical staff advised a 10-day quarantine. So I left for home after the quarantine. I took rest for a few days, and I have slowly begun some physical exercises now,” Amit Mishra said.
Amit Mishra is the second-highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 166 wickets from 154 games. He took six wickets in four games he played this season including a match-winning spell of 4/24 against Mumbai Indians.
