Quite simply because of the way both the fuels burn. Petrol is highly combustible, hence a small spark (which is produced from the spark plug) is enough to ignite the fuel and produce the power stroke. Petrol is injected into the cylinder and the the spark plug burns the fuel.
Diesel on the other hand will not ignite with a naked flame. It has to be heated for it to combust. That is why older diesel engines used to have a glow plug (heater). Here air is heated inside the cylinder and diesel is injected (in the form of mist) into the cylinder. When the Diesel comes in contact with the hot air inside the cylinder, it ignites and produces the power stroke.
