Delhi Daredevils won the toss and decided to field first against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the thirty-sixth match of the Indian Premier League at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad.
Here is what the captains said:
“I am surely it’s going to play the same throughout. It’s nice to have a few days off. Just one change, Bhuvi comes in for Basil Thampi.”
“The wicket seems to be dry but it’s hard too. We have won majority of the matches batting first. Ponting came to us and said there’s no place for complacency. We have two changes.”
