On being asked to bat first DD captain Zaheer Khan said: “Wicket is looking good that’s been a general trend in this tournament (talking about winning toss and bowling first). Don’t mind batting first here. If we enjoy the moments and absorb pressure, we are hopeful we can do well. The stage is set for that. It’s all about handling pressure, looking forward for this game. Everybody has been working hard and just looking to capitalize on the momentum. 2 changes for us. Billings and Morris in. Duminy misses out.” ( Zak forgot to mention who’s Morris replacing)

After winning the toss RCB skipper Virat Kohli said: “We gonna have a bowl. The surface is pretty hard and looks like a good batting wicket. This is what you play cricket for. The kind of situation we are in and the way things have gone in the last few games, it’s been pretty exciting. Running between the wickets has been one of our strengths and we want to put pressure in the middle overs. We back ourselves, focus on what we can do. We have got only one change. Iqbal Abdulla in and Varun Aaron out.”

The Delhi Daredevils host the Royal Challengers Bangalore at Raipur for the final league game of IPL 9. RCB have won the toss and have decided to bowl first.
