Bangalore: Apr 16, 2013

A heavily deflated Delhi Daredevils visit the M Chinnaswamy Stadium to take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match today.

Both teams are at the opposite ends of the points table and Delhi are are under more pressure. It would be a tough ask for the visitors to trump Bangalore on their home ground, but T20 is an unpredictable format.

Bangalore have had a few close finishes in their campaign so far and would want to be clinical in their approach to close games. Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers are in good form and it augurs well for a side that is said to be dependent on the big-hitting Chris Gayle. The West Indian is undoubtedly their ace, but with others doing well it helps Bangalore immensely. In the last game they replaced Moises Henriques with Dan Christian and there may be a recall for the former. Henriques has bowled well and would add value with his medium pace.

Delhi have had a tough season in every sense and are yet to find their winning touch. The return of Virender Sehwag is good news, but it might take him time to settle into the line-up. Along with David Warner and skipper Mahela Jayawardene, he holds the key in the batting. With Kevin Pietersen and Jesse Ryder unavailable, the trio has to ensure that they post good totals. Kedar Jadhav and Manpreet Juneja are the youngsters in the side who have been impressive so far.
