Indian Premier League - 7th match

Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Daredevils

Rajasthan Royals won by 6 wickets (with 9 balls remaining)

Hello there! Welcome to Rajasthan v Delhi.

Warne: "We are a tough team to beat here in Jaipur. We know what to do here. It looks an excellent wicket."

Sehwag: "The first game was tough. We are looking to come back here. We bowled and fielded well in the last game; hopefully we can bat better this time. I am used to facing all these fast bowlers (Tait or Malinga), hopefully the others will also soon start doing well."

Sehwag has won the toss and says he will bat first. " I want runs on board. If you see 140 150 is wining score in this IPL. It will take time to gel .. hopefully in three-four games we shall get going really well as a team."

Warne: "When Tait gets it right, he is the best in business. My form is not too bad. I haven't been fit since I was 12! Hopefully i will get better and better."

Delhi have made one change: Nadeem in for Umesh Yadav.

Rajasthan have made 2 changes: Tait and Ajinkya Rahane in for Jacob Oram (injured) and Stuart Binny.
