Virender Sehwag doubtful for IPL openerKolkata: Already missing a few key players due to injuries, Delhi Daredevils may suffer another setback as explosive batsman Virender Sehwag is a doubtful starter for Wednesday’s IPL opener against Kolkata Knight Riders due to a back problem.

"He is having back spasm. We have no idea when he`s joining the side the side. We will take a call after he`s here," coach Eric Simons said hinting that the team is prepared to play without the swashbuckling opener.

The team will also miss out on last season`s Purple cap holder Albie Morkel, who bowled Titans to a semis place in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge in the South Africa domestic cricket.

"They are playing semis tomorrow and if they make final (on April 7) we may miss him for another game," Simons added.

The Daredevils are already missing English batsman Kevin Pietersen who had been ruled out for the entire season owing to a knee injury.

They will also miss Jesse Ryder since the big-hitting is badly injured following a brutal assault in a Christchurch bar.
