Indian Premier League - 39th match

Delhi Daredevils v Pune Warriors

Delhi Daredevils won by 15 runs

Delhi's openers are Sehwag and Jayawardene. We have Rachna Shetty in the stands in Raipur and this is what she has to say: "It's quite hot here. But this is less an IPL match and more a picnic. Families with little toddlers. Of course, nobody concerned with sitting in their seats."

Two slips for Bhuvneshwar ...

The early word from Raipur is that Pune Warriors are bowling first. It's Raipur's first IPL game and there's excitement in the city.
