Dhoni opts to bowl against Daredevils

The Chennai Super Kings won the toss and invited Delhi Daredevils to bat first in their return leg of the Indian Premier League tie.

Having beaten the same opponents in their own backyard less than a week ago, Delhi Daredevils start as favourites when they take on Chennai Super Kings. Despite the loss in Mumbai, Daredevils looked a better side with their top order in cracking form and having more variety in bowling.

The Super Kings, on the other hand, must be low in morale having lost their last three matches after starting the tournament strongly winning their first four matches.

Dhoni's side has been hit hard by the departure of top order batsmen, Australians Matthew Hayden and Michael Hussey, and in the last three matches they have been beaten comprehensively mainly due to top order not firing.

Delhi Daredevils: Virender Sehwag, Rajat Bhatia, AB de Villiers, Shikhar Dhawan, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Gautam Gambhir, Brett Geeves, Dinesh Karthik, Glenn McGrath, Farveez Maharoof, Yo Mahesh, Mithun Manhas, Amit Mishra, Mohammad Asif, Yogesh Nagar, Pradeep Sangwan, Shoaib Malik, Mayank Tehlan, Manoj Tiwary, Tejashwi Yadav.

Chennai Super Kings: Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Viraj Vilas Kadbe, Palani Amarnath, Srikkanth Anirudha, R Ashwin, Subramaniam Badrinath, Lakshmipathy Balaji, Napoleon Einstein, Stephen Fleming, Manpreet Gony, Shadab Jakati, Joginder Sharma, Arun Karthik, Suresh Kumar, Albie Morkel, Abhinav Mukund, Muttiah Muralitharan, Makhaya Ntini, Parthiv Patel, Suresh Raina, Vidyut Sivaramakrishnan, Sudeep Tyagi.
