Rajasthan Royals' Australian all-rounder Shane Watson will miss his team's opening IPL game against Delhi Daredevils to be played at the Feroze Shah Kotla here on Saturday.

It is learnt that Watson will not be able to reach here before the match would only be available from the second game onwards.

Meanwhile, the Royals had a two-and-a-half hour training session at the Kotla here today. Batting mainstay Rahul Dravid and Ajinkya Rahane had a decent hit in the middle.

West Indian bowling all-rounder Kevin Cooper looked like a doubtful starter for the first game as he was seen with his right knee wrapped with ice pack.

According to team sources, young Kerala glovesman Sanju Samson is set to make his IPL debut while the pace attack is likely to comprise Indian pacer S Sreesanth and newly acquired West Indian Fidel Edwards.

Stuart Binny will be one of the all-rounders providing balance to the side.
