Kolkata: 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.
