Pune: Apr 24, 2012

Pune Warriors India (PWI) captain Sourav Ganguly has won the toss and elected to bat first against Delhi Daredevils (DD) in the 31st match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2012 at Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium in Pune.

Pune Warriors would look to extend their good run while table-toppers Delhi would have revenge on their mind when the two teams square off in the Indian Premier League on Tuesday.

The Daredevils have been a dominating team in the league till the defeat against Pune in their last match. They have won four of the six matches so far on the back of a solid all-round performance.

While Delhi have been a force right from the start, Pune have gradually shifted the gears. They have worked hard as a unit and have a good skipper in Sourav Ganguly, who knows the art of getting the best out of his players.
