Delhi Daredevils VS Deccan Chargers IPL - Today at Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi

The Indian Premier League (IPL) : Today the match begins with Delhi Daredevils clashing with Deccan Chargers at Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi. Delhi Daredevils' stocks in the tournament have risen higher after their bowlers masterminded a seven-wicket win over Mumbai Indians. On the other hand Deccan Chargers have lost three games in a row - the last two slipped through their fingers.

Delhi Daredevils : Daredevils look a completely different side with the availability of Mahela Jayawardene, Kevin Pietersen and  Ross Taylor. Daredevils will have to figure out how to play all three overseas batsmen, though. They had a strong batting line-up to chase any kind of score.

Daredevils' hustling pace has razed three strong batting line-ups to scores below 110. The only game that they lost was to Royal Challengers Bangalore, partially due to the inexperience of their middle order and partially, due to the guile of Muttiah Muralitharan who took three wickets.With the influx of Ross Taylor in the last game, their batting looks as intimidating as their bowling. Daredevils will need to be careful though, as their batting firepower hasn't been tested yet. In all four games, they have batted second after their bowlers had done the job.

Delhi Daredevils squad : V Sehwag(C), MC Juneja, VR Aaron, AB Agarkar, P Bisht, R Bist, GH Bodi, DAJ Bracewell, U Chand, AJ Finch, DPMD Jayawardene, GJ Maxwell, M Morkel, S Nadeem, Y Nagar, PT Naik, P Negi, NV Ojha†, IK Pathan, KP Pietersen, KC Raval, AD Russell, AM Salvi, LRPL Taylor, RE van der Merwe, Y Venugopal Rao, Vikas Mishra, DA Warner, TP Yadav, UT Yadav, Zafir Patel

Deccan Chargers : Sangakkara could take positives out from the fact that their relatively inexperienced team has had their chances. They have just missed that one last push. Dale Steyn and Amit Mishra will both need to fire in tandem and their fielding needs to inspire.

Chargers replaced a struggling Cameron White with JP Duminy and his 26-ball 58 pushed the team to 196, which had looked improbable. Duminy, who hit five sixes in his innings, can also hold an innings together if required. But the bowling department is fell down again-2.Steyn & Mishra has put his bowling more Atacking as ther are.

Deccan Chargers squad : KC Sangakkara(C), A Ashish Reddy, Anand Rajan, Ankit Sharma, T Atchuta Rao, AA Bhandari, DM Bravo, B Chipli, DT Christian, KH Devdhar, S Dhawan, JP Duminy, MS Gony, DJ Harris, IR Jaggi, AA Jhunjhunwala, CA Lynn, A Mishra, T Mishra, PA Patel†, V Pratap Singh, SA Quadri, DB Ravi Teja, PA Reddy, BB Samantray, C Sneha Kishore, S Sohal, TM Srivastava, DW Steyn, TP Sudhindra, J Theron, CL White, AS Yadav

The match will be starting at 4.00pm local time.

IP Delhi won by 5 wickets
