Sharjah: Decimated in their most recent Indian Premier League match, there is some good news for the beleaguered Delhi Daredevils with their injured English skipper Kevin Pietersen saying that he expects to be fit for the team's next game in Dubai. "I don't know if they are missing me. This is a long tournament; we've played three matches and won one...As for me, I'm going to hopefully be back in the next game," Pietersen, who had been nursing a finger injury, told the IPL's official website.

Delhi will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next match on April 25. "I have trained a couple of days, but it hasn't been an ideal start going into this tournament. I had good practice for a couple of weeks in London, but then hurt myself and have had three weeks off," the attacking batsman said. (Also read: CSK crush Daredevils | Highlights)

Delhi were quite literally thrashed by Chennai Super Kings last night, losing by 93 runs in a lopsided game. Even though he has not been able to play, Pietersen said he has tried to keep the team motivated in the dugout.
