Royal Challengers take on Delhi Daredevils tomorrow

Bangalore, May 18 (UNI) After successive defeats, the Bangalore Royal Challengers will have to utilise all its resources for a victory over Delhi Daredevils to be played at the M Chinnaswamy stadium here tomorrow.

Dravid's men, playing their sixth match in the home turf with only one win would have to make all out efforts for a victory against the Sehwag-led team to salvage its prestige.

A win against Daredevils might be a herculian task for the 'frustrated' Dravid as his men, despite adopting various game plans, failed to perform effectively.

Daredevils, though placed fifth with 10 points with six wins and five losses from 11 matches, have the edge over the hosts who are in the seventh place with four points from two wins and eight defeats from ten matches.

Tomorrow's match is crucial for the visitors to keep afloat and Sehwag-led team may go all out for victory.

Daredevils face a must-win game against Challengers having lost their match against Kings XI Punjab last night. Though Delhi has two more matches one against Kolkata Knight Riders and another against Mumbai Indians, both the teams are fighting for semifinal berths.

To stay in contention, the Delhi need a big win against Royal Challengers on the morrow.
