Mumbai: Virender Sehwag will miss the rest of the IPL after having decided to undergo surgery on his injured shoulder. It could also cast a shadow over his place in India's upcoming tour of the West Indies, from June 4, and perhaps even the England series that begins in mid-July.
"It will be a miracle if he plays another match," PB Vanchi, director of GMR Sports Pvt.Ltd, owners of Delhi Daredevils, said. Delhi, who are currently seventh in the points table, have three games left and have a slim chance of making it to the qualifiers.
Vanchi said it was a mutual decision that was taken after Sehwag held talks with the BCCI on his injury. He was advised to undergo surgery as soon as possible. "He has a problem. In the last match, too he struggled. The BCCI is making the arrangements for the surgery," Vanchi said. "They are waiting for a date. If he needs the surgery we are not going to be coming in the way."
