Delhi Daredevils under stand-in Captain Mahela Jayawardene has won the toss and put hosts Kings XI Punjab to bat first on what is expected to be a seamer friendly pitch at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala. This is of course a must-win game for Kings XI Punjab to have any chances of making it to the last four.
Virender Sehwag is still ill and is not even in the ground. The Delhi Daredevils who are already into the play offs have replaced Ross Taylor with fast bowler Morne Morkel. Kings XI Punjab have replaced Nitin Saini with Paul Valthaty.
Kings XI Punjab: AC Gilchrist (Captain & Wicket Keeper), Mandeep Singh, PC Valthaty, DJ Hussey, Azhar Mahmood, Gurkeerat Singh, SD Chitnis, PP Chawla, RJ Harris, P Kumar, P Awana
