In the unavailability of Shreyas Iyer, Pant was given the role of captaining the squad in the Indian leg of the IPL. Upon injuring his shoulder in the home series versus England, Iyer had to get shoulder surgery. He missed the IPL due to this ailment, which was cut short when Covid hit the camps of many teams.
