Ahead of the second half of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, Delhi Capitals has hit the ground running in their pre-season camp under the watchful eyes of assistant coaches Pravin Amre and Ajay Ratra at the ICC Academy in Dubai.

Shreyas Iyer, who missed out on the first half of the season due to a shoulder injury, reached Dubai a week earlier than the rest of the team to work on his game with Amre. Coming back from a five-month injury hiatus, Iyer is leaving no stone unturned during practice. The assistant coach has expressed that Iyer has regained his full fitness and is hitting the ball very well in the nets.

“I am feeling on top of the world, to be honest. This was the thing I was eagerly waiting for. It’s never a bad feeling to be among the team. I came six days prior to the start of the practice sessions for the team, and I had two good games against the UAE team, so I just want to continue with the same momentum,” said Iyer in the Delhi Capitals release.

Delhi Capitals, who are currently at the top of the table with 12 points from 8 matches, will look to start from scratch in the second half of the tournament. DC is set to take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad on September 22 when IPL 2021 season resumes.
