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

TOSS: Delhi Daredevils have won the toss and KP has decided to bowl first.

Rajasthan Royals, probably the only side in the tournament to promote young talent on a regular basis, would be desperate to register a win against the depleted Delhi Daredevils, which will strengthen their spot for the play offs. Skipper Shane Watson came to open the innings for his side in the previous match, where they made quite a few changes to their playing eleven. Rajasthan have all the top class players to edge past Delhi who have been struggling to find any sort of rhythm.

Delhi Daredevils on the other hand have continued to disappoint their fans. Despite having some quality players in the squad, Delhi haven`t managed to get the best of them, a reason why they have lost eight out of ten matches. Delhi have a decent batting line-up in Murali Vijay, Quinton de Kock, Kevin Pietersen, JP Duminy and Kedar Jadhav. Their problem has been the inability to allot these players their respective roles.

In the bowling department, Mohammad Shami has been the biggest disappointment for the KP-led side. The speedster was expected to be among the top wicket takers in the tournament, but he has managed to pick just five wickets from ten matches.
