Virender Sehwag [ Images ] is in doubt for the upcoming Champions League [ Images ] Twenty20 [ Images ] after he has been advised two weeks of rest because of ligament injury he sustained during India's [ Images ] last Super Eights game in the ICC [ Images ] World Twenty20 against South Africa [ Images ] in Colombo.
Sehwag strained a ligament in his left ankle during South Africa's innings last night and according to the Indian team's media manager Dr R N Baba, the right-hander has been advised rest for 14 days.
Sehwag, who had a poor World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka [ Images ], scoring only 54 runs in three innings at a strike rate of 112, suffered the injury while celebrating Jacques Kallis' [ Images ] dismissal off Irfan Pathan [ Images ] in the fourth over.
He limped off the field to be replaced by Manoj Tiwary, and did not return to the field again.
The injury comes as a big blow for Delhi Daredevils [ Images ] of whom Sehwag remains a key player despite relinquishing captaincy duties for CLT20 to be held in South Africa from October 9.
The Daredevils are scheduled to open their campaign against Kolkata Knight Riders [ Images ] on October 13 in Centurion.
