Rajasthan Royals will face an uphill task against table-toppers Delhi Daredevils in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2012 match on Sunday afternoon at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in New Delhi.
The Daredevils have so far looked to be the most balanced side in the tournament, but they need to guard against complacency to stamp their authority being table-toppers.
Having won six matches and lost two out of eight so far in the tournament, the Delhi outfit is leading the team standings with 12 points.
Bowling will be a worry for the Rajasthan Royals, although, they have looked good with the bat.
Captain Rahul Dravid has already admitted that bowling at the death has been a problem area for the team.
The Royals will thus bank on their batsmen to seize the initiative against Sehwag’s men. However, lack of runs from the middle order remains a primary concern for Dravid.
DD: Mahela Jayawardene, Virender Sehwag (c), Kevin Pietersen, Ross Taylor, Naman Ojha (wk), Irfan Pathan, Yogesh Nagar, Morne Morkel, Ajit Agarkar, Umesh Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem.
RR: Rahul Dravid (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Owais Shah, Brad Hodge, Ashok Menaria, Shrevats Goswami (wk), Kevon Cooper, Pankaj Singh, Brad Hogg, Ankeet Chavan, Amit Singh.
