Chennai: May 25, 2012
Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Daredevils will lock horns at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai for a spot in the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2012. It would be a high octane clash as both teams would be itching to havee a crack at the IPL trophy on Sunday.
Chenni made a backdoor entry into the play-offs but stormed past Mumbai Indians in the eliminator. Mahendra Singh Dhoni turned on the heat as his belligerent knock tore apart the Mumbai bowlers.
Delhi have dominated throughout the season but lost to Kolkata Knight Riders in the first qualifier. Virender Sehwag would be eager to change Delhi's track record as they have never won a knock out game in the IPL.
Delhi have won the toss and chosen to bowl. However, they would be playing without their trump-card Morne Morkel and Irfan Pathan. Sunny Gupta and Andre Russell have injured the duo.
Chennai are unchanged from their previous game.
DD: Virender Sehwag (c), David Warner, Naman Ojha (wk), Mahela Jayawardene, Y Venugopal Rao, Pawan Negi, Ross Taylor, Sunny Gupta, Andre Russell, Umesh Yadav, Varun Aaron.
