Match No. 23 of the DLF Indian Premier League T20 Cricket (IPL 5) will be played today 19 April 2012 between Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Deccan Chargers (DC) at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, New Delhi at 4.00 PM local time.
Delhi Daredevils and Deccan Chargers have met 9 times so far in the Indian Premier League T20. Out of 9 meetings, Delhi Daredevils have won 5 times while Deccan Chargers have won 4 times.
DD and DC are facing contrasting fortunes in IPL 5. While DD have occupied second position in the points table by winning 3 of the 4 matches they have so far played with a net run rate of +1.099, DC are languishing at the bottom by losing all the 3 matches they have played with -1.366 net run rate.
While DD will be trying hard to top the chart, DC will be trying to put some points on the chart against their name though they will remain at the bottom.
On paper, DD are a formidable team with their Captain Virender Sehwag, Kevin Petiersen, Jayawardane and Ross Taylor with Nadeem performing creditably as a bowler. JP Duminy finding his rhythm along with their captain Sangakkara, DC are also expected to do better in this match.
