New Delhi: It was the heavy dew in Bangalore that led to the recurrence of Virender Sehwag's back problems as the senior opener didn't field in the last three overs of the RCB innings and hence couldn't come out to bat during the 'Super Over' chase.
"Yesterday evening was a cool one and there was a lot of dew. This led to the recurrence of Viru's back problem. Suddenly there was a lot of stiffness in his back and he was unable to stand on the field. There was no other option but to send Pawan Negi as the substitute fielder," a member of the Daredevils support staff told PTI on Wednesday.
Asked about Sehwag's chances of playing against Chennai Super Kings, the source answered, "As of now, he is available for selection."
