Delhi Daredevils (DD) captain Virender Sehwag has won the toss and elected to bowl first against Pune Warriors India (PWI) at New Delhi.

Table-toppers Delhi Daredevils will seek to extend their three-match winning streak when they face Pune Warriors in their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash at the Ferozeshah Kotla Saturday.
