Yuvi's Kings aim to dare Viru's  Devils

Cape Town: Sehwag's Delhi Devils will clash with Yuvraj's Kings XI Punjab in the third match of the IPL Season two on Sunday.

Both teams were semi-finalists in the inaugural season of the IPL but both stumbled at the penultimate hurdle.

Delhi Dare Devils have emerged as the hot favourites in the tournament as they possess an outstanding batting line up.  All of the Delhi's top batsmen like captain Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, David Warner and South African AB de Villiers are in terrific form.

Aussies veteran Glen McGrath will spearhead the bowling attack of Delhi Devils. Kiwis captain Vettori and Indian spinner Amith Mishra sharpens Delhi's bowling attack.

Kings XI Punjab are no less formidable in batting with Sri Lankans Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawradene besides captain Yuvraj Singh. However, the biggest concern for King's XI Punjab skipper is, his bowling resources are thinner than ever. There is no Brett Lee, no Sreesanth, and no James Hopes, at least till the first nine matches, either.

They will also miss Australians Shaun Marsh and James Hopes who will be in Abu Dhabi for national duties.
