New Delhi:

Delhi Daredevils will have to play without Ashish Nehra for two more weeks as the fast bowler is still nursing his rib injury he picked up during training in Mohali last week.

Greg Shipperd, the Delhi coach, confirmed Nehra would be out of action for as long as two weeks but was quick to add the squad "would not miss him" too much.

Nehra was a key figure in Delhi's IPL campaign in South Africa last year, taking 19 wickets to finish the third-highest wicket-taker in the tournament. That achievement factored hugely in his return to the Indian side last summer.

In his absence, Delhi's attack will be led by the left-arm quick Dirk Nannes, who has been outstanding in the team's first two matches.
