Delhi Daredevils batsman Unmukt Chand has said the absence of two key overseas players in Kevin Pietersen and Jesse Ryder will increase the responsibility on the rest of the team during the IPL. Ryder was in a coma after he was assaulted outside a bar and has since begun the path to recovery. “Jesse’s incident was unfortunate. We really feel sad about it.

His absence would mean additional responsibility. He will be a big miss this time.”
