Gilchrist wins the toss, Kings XI set to bowl
Kings XI Punjab skipper Adam Gilchrist has won the toss and elected to bowl first against an underperforming Delhi DareDevils at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi.
The DareDevils come into the game rooted to the bottom of the IPL group table and will be in dire need of securing 2 valuable points if that want to challenge for a play off place.

Victory tonight against an under performing DareDevils side will see the Kings XI join the Mumbai Indians on 8 points at the top of the table.
The visitors have brought David Hussey into the line up for the first time in this year’s tournament while the DareDevils have selected Varun Aaron and Ajit Agarkar.
Delhi Daredevils team - V Sehwag*, DA Warner, AJ Finch, Y Nagar, NV Ojha†, Y Venugopal Rao, IK Pathan, JR Hopes, AB Agarkar, M Morkel, VR Aaron.
