He can resume playing matches and is all set to play in the second leg of the IPL starting September 19.

He is all set to join Delhi Capitals once again. He was not a part of the team in the first phase of IPL 2021 due to an injury. Under his captaincy the team had reached the finals in IPL 2020. Rishabh Pant was the captain of the team after Iyer was injured.
