7:36, Toss Mahela has won the toss and decided to bowl first. Sehwag is not playing today due to fever, Mahela Jayawardene will lead the Delhi Daredevils.

While the Delhi Daredevils have already secured a berth for the playoffs, they would not line to be complacent against the Royal Challengers Banagalore who are yet to make it to the top four slot.

Royal Challengers Bangalore were defused by an unbeaten 122-run partnership between Kieron Pollard and Ambati Rayudu who snatched victory from them in the previous match after Mumbai were reeling at 51/5.


It is a must-win game for the Royal Challengers Bangalore and they once again expect Chris Gayle to provide them a solid platform and take them a step ahead in the competition.

Players to watch-out for:

Royal Challengers Bangalore: He perished for just 6 in the previous match against Mumbai Indians and even though Delhi have nothing to lose in the clash, Chris Gayle can easily demolish the morale of a few bowlers.


Delhi Daredevils: He lost his purple cap earlier to Malinga and then with Sunil Narine who though equaled his 21 wickets, but are ahead of him due to a better economy rate. Thus we can be rest assured of some fiery spells from Morne Morkel who would definitely like to scalp a few wickets and march ahead in the list.

The match begins at 8:00 pm
