The Indian outfit will bank on big-hitter Virender Sehwag to give them a good start. Supporting Sehwag will be skipper Mahela Jayawardene. Among others, U-19 champion Unmukt Chand, Kevin Pietersen and Ross Taylor are expected to lend solidity to the middle-order.
Delhi’s bowling attack - Irfan Pathan and Morne Morkel, young Umesh Yadav and wily Ajit Agarkar have been more than handy.
The Lions have relied on their efficient bowling for their success. “We always thought we can make it to the semis and even the final. The guys have been working hard since April,” said left-arm spinner Aaron Phangiso, who has grabbed eight wickets in four matches at an economy rate of 4.43.
Lions will want opener Gulam Bodi to carry his fine form. He scored 152 in four matches. Skipper Alviro Petersen, Quinton de Kock and Neil McKenzie are other batsmen Lions would be banking on.
