Injured Sehwag still not completely out of CL T20

A final decision on Sehwag, who represents Delhi Daredevils, will be taken in a day or two.

Virender Sehwag, advised rest two weeks’ rest following a ligament injury in his left ankle, has not been completely ruled out of the Champions League T20 beginning in South Africa on Tuesday.

He could still play the later matches of the 16-team tournament.

A final decision on Sehwag, who represents Delhi Daredevils, will be taken in a day or two, sources in the team said on Thursday. They confirmed that Sehwag, who arrived in Delhi from Colombo on Wednesday evening, underwent an MRI test on Thursday.

“We’ll have a proper assessment of his injury done in a couple of days. It’ll eventually be the player’s call on his fitness. We don’t want to push him,” a source told MAIL TODAY.

Sehwag apparently tore his ligament while celebrating the fall of South African Jacques Kallis’s wicket off pacer Irfan Pathan, in India’s last Super Eights game in Colombo on Tuesday.

Manoj Tiwary replaced Sehwag, who limped off the field and did not return again.

The first batch of the Daredevils team leaves for Johannesburg on Friday.
