New Delhi: Delhi Daredevils fast bowler Dirk Nannes missed Wednesday's game against Rajasthan Royals with a finger injury and has been ruled out for a week from the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The left-arm pacer sustained the injury after being hit by a scorching drive from Wriddhiman Saha in Daredevils' last game against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Monday.

Nannes received stitches on the fingers and had to leave the field immediately without completing his over.

Nannes will surely miss the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, April 4, but a top team official told IANS that he would be fit for the away match against Kolkata Knight Riders on April 7.

Delhi have already been hit by injuries to captain Gautam Gambhir, who had to sit out for three matches, while paceman Ashish Nehra is yet to play a game.
