India batsman Shreyas Iyer, who is recovering from a shoulder injury, has been included in the list of 45 players announced by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) for its fitness camp.
The 26-year-old Iyer had sustained a shoulder injury during the ODI series against England in March earlier this year and was subsequently ruled out of the IPL, which was eventually suspended midway following multiple COVID-19 cases.
