Sehwag bats for 25 minutes at the daredevils nets
Senior Delhi Daredevils opener Virender Sehwag batted for around 25 minutes during the team’s customary net session as pacer Morne Morkel hinted that the batsman might just be ready to play his first match of the sixth edition of IPL. ‘Viru (Sehwag) is improving, he is getting better with every passing day. But we will take a decision on him only tomorrow. There is still 24 hours for the match, so there is plenty of time for him to be fully fit,’ Morkel said at the pre-match press conference on Thursday. Sehwag’s presence tomorrow will definitely bolster Daredevils’ hopes after the Delhi outfit witnessed a disastrous start to their IPL 6 campaign having lost their opening three games in the event. ‘We did not have the best of starts this year, but we have identified the areas we got wrong. We have worked on them and hopefully we will get the momentum from tomorrow. We do have certain plans which we need to execute tomorrow. Kotla is our home ground and we need to take advantage of that. The mood in the team is good and hopefully we will come out with a positive result before our home crowd,’ Morkel added.
