Centurion, Oct 22: After other IPL teams crashed out of Champions League T20, Delhi Daredevils look to seal their semi-final berth on Tuesday in the last group match against South Africa's Titans at Centurion.

Preview: Daredevils Vs Titans on Tuesday

Having lost a couple of early wickets, Sehwag's heroics saved Delhi Daredevils on Sunday as they registered a three wicket win against Perth Scorchers.

Delhi Daredevils are placed at the top of the table with 10 points and a win against Titans will seal their semifinal berth, while Titans' semi-final hopes will be shattered if they lose the match against Delhi and if Auckland registers a win against Perth Scorchers.

Titans, who lost their previous encounter to Kolkata Knight Riders, would look forward to win the match and cement their semifinal berth as well.

With Rudolph, Henry Davids at the top, Titans have registered good starts in the tournament. If they fire again, Titans are sure to upset Delhi as Jayawardene's men struggled to score 122 against Perth on Sunday.

Delhi's batting collapsed against Perth while it was only Virender Sehwag who single-handedly helped the team reach the three figure mark on Sunday. If Titans take cue from the previous match and trap Delhi players, they can definitely upset the table toppers.

Since its a must-win match for both the teams, the last group match of Champions League T20 promises to be a cracker of a contest.


Delhi Daredevils: Mahela Jayawardena (captain), Ajit Agarkar, Unmukt Chand, Morne Morkel, Pawan Negi, Naman Ojha, Irfan Pathan, Kevin Pietersen, Andre Russell, Aavishkar Salvi, Virender Sehwag, Ross Taylor, Venugopal Rao, David Warner, Umesh Yadav.

Titans: Martin van Jaarsveld (captain), Farhaan Behardien, Henry Davids, AB de Villiers (wicketkeeper), Cornelius de Villiers, Paul Harris, Heino Kuhn (wicketkeeper), Eden Links, Ethy Mbhalati, Mangaliso Mosehle, Rowan Richards, Jacques Rudolph, Alfonso Thomas, Roelof van der Merwe, David Wiese.

Match starts at 9 PM
