Sehwag may not play in Daredevils' opening game
Dashing batsman Virender Sehwag has a back spasm and it is doubtful he will be Delhi Daredevils' tournament opener against title holders Kolkata Knight Riders Wednesday, coach Eric Simons said Tuesday.
Sehwag, a batting mainstay of the Delhi side, is yet to arrive in the city.
"He is suffering from back spasm and is yet to arrive in Kolkata. The team is not sure if he will play tomorrow," Simons told a match-eve media meet after a practice session at the Eden Gardens here.
He said Sehwag was likely to arrive later Tuesday. "But we are not sure when he will come. When he comes we will take a call," Simons added.

More Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who recently announced his support to the Pro-Kabaddi League, says that sport chose him. "I did not choose kabaddi; in fact, the sport chose me. It's a traditional sport and is yet to receive its due in a cricket-csrazy nation. Being a sports lover myself, I want to change the perception about the game in India. Despite kabaddi being an Indian game, it comes a long way down the pecking order of sports in our country. I want to promote it and would like to see the fan base of the game increasing tremendously with this tournament," he said.
