====================================================================================

Delhi (Playing XI): Unmukt Chand, David Warner, Mahela Jayawardene(c), Naman Ojha(w), Johan Botha, Andre Russell, Irfan Pathan, Manprit Juneja, Shahbaz Nadeem, Ashish Nehra, Umesh Yadav

Rajasthan (Playing XI): Rahul Dravid(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Brad Hodge, Kushal Janith Perera(w), Stuart Binny, Ashok Menaria, Kevon Cooper, S Sreesanth, Samuel Badree, Rahul Shukla, Siddharth Trivedi

====================================================================================

Rajasthan Royals have won the toss and they will be batting first.

====================================================================================

After losing their first match in the tournament Delhi Daredevils will be looking to get back to winning ways with a victory over the Rahul Dravid led Rajasthan Royals. Delhi are missing the services of some of their most valuable players. The void left by the absence of Ross Taylor, Kevin Pietersen and Virender Sehwag in particular has proved to be a big concern for the Mahela Jayawardene led side.
