Durban: Oct 25, 2012
While the Daredevils finished their league engagements unbeaten and on top of Group A after two wins and a couple of washouts, the Lions ended second in group B with three victories and a loss from their four preliminary matches.
Delhi are the only IPL side left in contention after three others were knocked out in the group stage itself. The Lions, on the other hand, are one of the two South African sides, the other being Titans, to have reached the semifinals.
Rising star Unmukt Chand makes it perhaps the best top-five in the tournament.
Highveld Lions: Gulam Bodi, Alviro Petersen(c), Quinton de Kock, Neil McKenzie, Jean Symes, Thami Tsolekile (wk), Chris Morris, Sohail Tanvir, Dwaine Pretorius, Dirk Nannes, Aaron Phangiso.
Delhi Daredevils: David Warner, Virender Sehwag, Kevin Pietersen, Unmukt Chand, Ross Taylor (c), Pawan Negi, Naman Ojha (wk), Irfan Pathan, Ajit Agarkar, Morne Morkel, Umesh Yadav.
