'The feeling was really difficult' - Shreyas Iyer opens up on missing the first half of the tournament

Delhi Capitals cricketer Shreyas Iyer has opened up on the battles of missing the main portion of IPL 2021 recently because of a shoulder injury. 

Iyer copped a shoulder injury during the restricted overs series against England recently, which controlled him out of IPL 2021. 

During a discussion on Delhi Capitals' YouTube channel, the 26-year-old focused on that it was a troublesome inclination to watch his partners play while he was recovering from a separated physical issue.

"It was really good, I was sitting in front of the TV and watching each and every game and feeling as if I am on the ground and trying to replicate the scenario at my place," Shreyas Iyer said.
"But the feeling was very difficult to sit out and see my other teammates play. But right now, its the past and I have to forget about it and continue with the same flow the team has maintained throughout," he added.

Rishabh Pant was given over the group's reins without Shreyas Iyer. The youthful wicketkeeper-hitter did really well, winning six out of eight games. Delhi Capitals are presently positioned at the highest point of the table with 12 focuses.

"I am feeling on top of the world right now" - Shreyas Iyer

In the mean time, the deferment of IPL 2021 because of the COVID-19 emergency ended up being a surprisingly positive development for Shreyas Iyer, who has recuperated on schedule to be accessible for the second period of the competition.

Iyer focused on that it was a nice sentiment to rejoin with his Delhi partners with whom he has valued playing.

"I am feeling on top of the world right now to be honest. This was the thing I was eagerly waiting for and today I got to bat along with my teammates. So, it's never a bad feeling to be amongst the team. And yeah, I am loving it."

Iyer made a trip to the UAE seven days in front of the whole crew to plan for the rest of IPL 2021.

"I came six days prior to the practice session and I had two really good games against the UAE team and yeah really good feeling so just want to continue with the same momentum," he said.

Delhi Capitals will launch their mission in the second phase of IPL 2021 against Sunrisers Hyderabad on September 22 in Dubai.
