He played a brilliant innings of 80 runs a day earlier, batting unmatched in the ODI series against West Indies (IND vs WI 3rd ODI) after defeating the Covid Pandemic. If you remember, he even took Delhi Capitals to the title match in IPL-2020. He got injured just before the start of the 2021 season of IPL and was ruled out of the initial matches.
Then Rishabh Pant was made the captain of the team under compulsion, but when he returned, he was not given the captaincy. This upset Iyer. He distanced himself from the team when it came time to be retained for the mega auction. It is believed that new teams had approached him, but he did not join. His condition was that he should captain the team. Now his condition has been fulfilled. In the last season, England captain Eoin Morgan led the team, while Dinesh Karthik was the captain before that. Now both the players are not in the team.
