Even after reaching the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 table, the journey ahead of Delhi Capitals can be difficult. In the 30th match of the tournament, Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer had to go out of the field due to injury. On 14 October, Ben Stokes shot the ball from Enrique Nortje on the last ball of the 5th over while fielding in a match against Rajasthan Royals. Shreyas Iyer fell in an attempt to prevent this shot from reaching the boundary.

Shreyas Iyer stopped the boundary but during this time his shoulder was injured. Shreyas Iyer had to leave the field due to injury. He was seen in a lot of pain while going out. In such a situation, if Iyer's injury is serious, then the journey ahead for Delhi can be very difficult. The team from Delhi has been facing injury numbers since the beginning of this IPL. So far 5 of his players (Ravichandran Ashwin, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Rishabh Pant, and Shreyas Iyer) have been injured. However, Ashwin has recovered and is also offering his services to the team.

After Delhi's win, Shikhar Dhawan also gave an update on Shreyas Iyer's injury. After Shreyer Iyer was injured, Dhawan also led the team. Dhawan said, "He is feeling pain." We will know about the injury on Thursday. The good thing is that there is movement in his shoulder. '

Dhawan said, "We knew that he could tackle his top-order early and get a grip on the match." He praised Man of the Match Enrique Nortje and fast bowler Tushar Deshpande who played their first match in IPL. Dhawan said, "We have experienced bowlers. Enrique is a superb fast bowler. Tusshar also bowled smartly. ”

Rajasthan captain Steve Smith called the defeat disappointing and said the team could not take advantage of a good start. He said, 'It was disappointing. The pitch was good but we could not take advantage of the good starts from Jose Butler and Ben Stokes. Stokes and Sanju Samson also had a good partnership but we lost a lot of wickets. ”He said,β€œ On such slow pitches it is difficult to score in the last. A batsman should have scored around 60 runs and should have played till the end.
