Kevin Pietersen, the skipper of the Indian Premier League franchise side Delhi Daredevils, is going to grab the opportunity to see how his little finger of his right hand works on Monday as his side will play a practice match in order to get ready for their IPL campaign, which is going to begin on April 17 against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Pietersen’s finger has been strapped for past one week, yet he has strived in the nets and he had to go through the throw downs at the time of the three-day session at the Airforce ground in Palam ahead of their departure from India to the Dubai-bound flight.
The Chief Executive Officer of the team, Hemant Dua stated that he has not found any information regarding to the availability of Pirtersen in the first match of Delhi Daredevils that is contradictory to reports in some quarters.
“I have not acquired any information as yet that KP won’t be attending the first match. I will come to know better once I arrived in there tomorrow. We have a practice match tomorrow.” Dua stated to PTI on Sunday.
In the interim time of the jersey launch at the city hotel on Saturday, when Pietersen was questioned about the protective padding on his finger as he seemed quite disdainful about the state of the injury, he said, “I remained it in England but just desiring to protect it and not shaking hands with anyone. But it assumes to be not a big problem.” He signed off.
