Notably, Iyer lost his captaincy after missing the first leg of IPL 2021 due to a shoulder injury. Delhi Capitals management decided to retain Pant as their skipper despite Shreyas' return in the UAE leg. With two new teams coming into the IPL fold from next season, Shreyas Iyer is likely to be picked by at least five franchises in the auction, according to media reports.
