Delhi Daredevils captain Kevin Pietersen will get a chance to test the injured little finger of his right hand on Monday when the team plays a practice match to get ready for their opening IPL encounter against RCB on April 17.
Although his finger has been strapped for the past one week, Pietersen has batted in the nets and also faced throwdowns during the three-day session at the Airforce ground in Palam before boarding the Dubai-bound flight.
Team’s CEO Hemant Dua said that there is no such information with him that Pietersen won’t be available for the first match, contrary to reports in some quarters.
“I have not received any information as yet that KP won’t be playing the first match. I will get to know better once I reach there tomorrow. We have a practice match tomorrow,” Dua said.
While there is a chance that Pietersen might not field, there is a chance he might just bat to see how his little finger is holding up. In case the doctor tells him to rest, he might just directly play the first match on Thursday.

Yeterday during team’s jersey launch at a city hotel, Pietersen was asked about the protective padding and he seemed dismissive about the state of the injury.
“I sustained it in England but just trying to protect it and not shaking hands with anyone. But it’s not a big problem,” he answered a query at the launch on Saturday.
