IPL 2012: Can Sehwag pay back Dada today?Pune: Pune Warriors would look to extend their good run while table-toppers Delhi Daredevils would have revenge on their mind when the two teams square off in the Indian Premier League on Tuesday.

IPL Points Table

The Daredevils have been a dominating team in the league till the defeat against Pune in their last match. They have won four of the six matches so far on the back of a solid all-round performance. While Delhi have been a force right from the start, Pune have gradually shifted the gears. They have worked hard as a unit and have a good skipper in Sourav Ganguly, who knows the art of getting the best out of his players.

Still, it will be challenge for him to continue with the good work as they have a very strong batting, the top-order of which is packed with at least four big-hitting batsmen, to contend with.

All top Daredevils batsmen -- Skipper Virender Sehwag, Kevin Pietersen, Mahela Jayawardene and Ross Taylor -- are in good nick. However, their bowlers hold the key in tomorrow`s clash as the race to be in top-four is gradually hotting up.

They can chase a big total with these batsmen in the line-up but Twenty20 is a format where two-three overs can change the complexion of a game.

So, the key is to not let Pune score much runs on the board, like they did in the last match by rattling up 192.

Although the track at the Subrata Roy Sahara stadium promises loads of runs, if Delhi bowlers can make early in-roads into Pune line up, it would serve them well.

South African paceman Morne Morkel has been their main bowler so far with 15 scalps and how he fares along with Irfan Pathan would actually shape up the match for them.

Similarly how Pune batsmen handle these two bowlers would have a bearing on the result of this match.
