Cape Town:

Delhi Daredevils skipper Virender Sehwag has put Daniel Vettori in the same league as legendary spinners Shane Warne and Anil Kumble and said the New Zealand skipper is the best tweaker in the world at present.

Sehwag lavished praise on his Daredevils team-mate Vettori for his magic with the ball last night against Kings XI Punjab which the Delhi outfit won comprehensively by 10 wickets in Duckworth Lewis method.

"At the moment Daniel (Vettori) is the best spinner in the world," Sehwag said.

Vettori was adjudged man-of-the for his match figures of three wickets for 15 runs and it was this spell that shifted the momentum in the Daredevils favour.

"The Kings XI Punjab were going great guns when I asked Danny (Daniel Vettori) to bowl and thanks to him we were successful in getting the crucial wickets," Sehwag said, adding the left-arm spinner has the ability to bowl well on any all sort of wickets.
