Delhi Daredevils led by Mahela Jayawardene in the absence of Skipper Virender Sehwag have won the toss and asked Royal Challengers Bangalore to bat first. It’s the 67th match of IPL 5 and it’s a must-win situation for RCB as they are struggling at no.6 with just 15 points. RCB have got two matches to go including this one against Delhi Daredevils. The RCB would need to win its two remaining matches to have a chance of making it to the play offs.
The RCB have made one change with left arm pacer Prashanth Parameshwaram replacing KP Appanna. Delhi Daredevils have made two changes with Sehwag out with illness and Morne Morkel getting rested. In their places come local lad Unmkut Chand and West Indian all-rounder Andre Russell.
Delhi Daredevils: DA Warner, U Chand, DPMD Jayawardene (Captain), NV Ojha (Wicket Keeper), LRPL Taylor, Y Venugopal Rao, IK Pathan, AD Russell, P Negi, VR Aaron, UT Yadav
Royal Challengers Bangalore: TM Dilshan, CH Gayle, V Kohli (Captain), AB de Villiers (Wicket Keeper), SS Tiwary, MA Agarwal, R Vinay Kumar, Z Khan, HV Patel, P Parameswaran, M Muralitharan
