New Delhi, April 11 (IANS) Dashing Delhi Daredevils opener Virender Sehwag is likely to play against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League tie here at the Ferozeshah Kotla Friday.

Sehwag was seen practicing at the Daredevils camp at the Kotla nets here Thursday. The 34-year-old batted for approximately 25 minutes when Irfan Pathan, South African spinner Johan Botha, and West Indian pacer Andre Russel bowled to him. He looked confident while playing his shots.

The former Daredevils captain missed the first three matches, which the side lost, and the Delhi-based team are in dire need of their star batsman. The explosive opener missed the games due to back spasm.

"Sehwag is definitely improving. We will take a call tomorrow. He is a big player for us and his return will be massive for the team," said all-rounder Morne Morkel after a practice session.
