Shreyas Iyer ruled out of Lancashire's Royal London Cup campaign

Iyer still recovering after shoulder surgery that he underwent earlier this year due to a dislocation

The wait for Shreyas Iyer's professional comeback lengthens. The Mumbai dasher suffered dislocation on his left shoulder earlier this year during an ODI match against England in Pune and had to go under the knife in the UK.

After missing out on leading his IPL franchise Delhi Capitals this season and an ongoing tour to Sri Lanka that, Iyer has withdrawn from Lancashire's Royal London Cup campaign.

Iyer started hitting the nets recently but it is understood that he is far from being ready for the July 22-August 18 tournament.

The statement released from Lancashire Cricket-

Following discussions between the Club and the BCCI, as well as the players’ representatives, it was agreed that Iyer would remain in India ahead of his return to cricket in due course.

Shreyas Iyer said: “I am gutted to not be able to play for Lancashire this summer, a Club that has such history and ambition. I hope to play at Emirates Old Trafford for Lancashire at some point in the future.”

Director of Cricket, Paul Allott said: “We are obviously very disappointed, as we were thoroughly looking forward to welcoming Shreyas to Emirates Old Trafford. Ultimately Shreyas’ long-term fitness is of paramount importance and Lancashire Cricket fully respects the decision. We wish Shreyas all the best with the remainder of his recovery, and from the conversations which I have had with the player, believe that this is an arrangement he would be keen to revisit again in the future.
