India batsman Shreyas Iyer has started his rehabilitation process after undergoing shoulder surgery. In a video posted from his official Twitter handle, Iyer shared a video where he is seen getting into fitness drills slowly and steadily. 

Iyer, who has been ruled out of the limited-overs tour of Sri Lanka had a realistic chance of captaining the Indian side in the absence of stalwarts. This could potentially have guaranteed his place in the World T20 scheduled to be played in October.

Lack of match time might prove to be his nemesis when the selectors sit down to pick the squad for the T20 World Cup slated to be held in India or in the UAE but Iyer's ability to punish the spin attack in subcontinental conditions might play in his favour, although subject to his fitness. 


Iyer sustained a shoulder injury during the limited-overs series against England at home and has not taken part in any competitive cricket since then. He underwent surgery which also ruled him out of the entire IPL. 

However with the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League suspended indefinitely, he might return for the second leg if and when it takes place. 

The Delhi Capitals skipper underwent shoulder surgery on 9th April and was expected to take three months to recover. With the series in Sri Lanka lined up in July, it wouldn’t have been possible for Iyer to force his way back into the team.
