India's injured Iyer a doubt for IPL start

·1-min read

Indian batsman Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the remaining two one-day internationals against England after injuring his left shoulder in Tuesday's opener.

The 26-year-old, who captains the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League, is also likely to miss part of the IPL season.

Iyer sustained the injury when diving to stop a shot by England opener Jonny Bairstow.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India tweeted that he had "subluxated his left shoulder" - that is, a partial dislocation.

The IPL will begin in Chennai on April 9 and will be played at six venues, initially without spectators.

India's Rohit Sharma was also hit on the right elbow when batting in the first ODI in Pune and did not take the field later on.

The hosts won the game by 66 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
