Jaipur:

Star opener Virender Sehwag has developed a sore back even though it is unlikely to affect his participation in the second cricket one-dayer against South Africa in Gwalior on Wednesday.

"Sehwag has a sore back and he underwent a scan yesterday. But it doesn't look serious enough to render him unavailable for the Gwalior match," a team official said.

Sehwag batted in last night's humdinger against South Africa which India clinched by a wafer-thin one-run margin in the final delivery.

Sehwag scored a brisk 46 before he got out and he could not fill in the part-timer's role during South Africa's chase because of the sore back.

Sehwag left the field during South Africa's innings and was replaced by Mumbai all-rounder Abhishek Nayyar.
