Shreyas Iyer (C) injured his left shoulder while fielding against England.
Iyer had suffered a shoulder injury during the ODI series against England earlier this year, and as a result, he missed the IPL leg which was held in India. Delhi Capitals then announced wicketkeeper-batsman as the leader of the franchise.
"My shoulder, yes, I think the healing process is done. Now its the last stage of achieving strength and range. So thats going to take about a month and the training is obviously going on. Other than that, I feel, I will be there in the IPL," Iyer said on The Grade Cricketers Podcast.
When asked whether he would come back as the captain of Delhi Capitals, Iyer said: "I dont know about the captaincy, its in the hands of the owners. But the team has already been doing well and we are on top and thats what really matters to me. My main aim and goal is to lift the trophy which Delhi has never done before."
Iyer had led the Delhi franchise to the finals of IPL 2020 but the side had to face a loss in the summit clash against Mumbai Indians.
Under Rishabh Pant, Delhi Capitals was positioned at the top of the table before the IPL 2021 season got suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The remaining half of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League is set to be played in the UAE from September 19 to October 15.
