IPL 2021: “Dear Delhi, I speak to you today as a fellow fan of the team we love,” Shreyas Iyer tweets an emotional video for his IPL teammates
Shreyas Iyer shares a heartwarming video of himself on twitter cheering up his Delhi Capitals' teammates as he couldn't be a part of the match CSK vs DC
In the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League, Shreyas Iyer led the Delhi Capitals with distinction.
Shreyas Iyer, the regular skipper of the Delhi Capitals will not be a part of the team in the upcoming match of SK vs DC due to his shoulder injury. The Delhi Capitals will start their IPL 2021 campaign against the MS Dhoni-led side Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on April 10 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Iyer dislocated his shoulder in the first match of the ODI series that took place in the month of March between India and England. Keeping that in mind, the doctors have advised the franchise not to let Shreyas Iyer play the match as he had to go through a surgery.
However, the 26-yearold skipper would never let his teammates feel alone and posted a heartwarming video of himself on Twitter cheering up the players.
Shreyas stated that he is speaking as a fan of the franchise, adding that the fight will be tough but the Delhi Capitals has what it takes to fight back and win the title.
“Dear Delhi, I speak to you today as a fellow fan of the team we love. We fight the same fight, we always did. We know it won’t be easy, but we know we’ve got what it takes to raise the cup. We have worked hard, harder than before. We have put in the yards, harder than before. And the best part, we go beyond than just a team. Make no mistake about it. Every ball, every game, you will have me in the corner. Your biggest supporter, with the loudest cheer. Come on Delhi, Roar macha. Love always, Shreyas,” the skipper said in an emotional video.
