Virender Sehwag is set to play his first match of the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League. The attacking opener will bolster the ordinary looking Delhi unit and inspire them to end their losing streak.

Sehwag will return to cricket after some gap as the right-hander played his last fixture against Australia in the four-match Test series. With many, including former England captain Geoffrey Boycott, feeling that Sehwag can't play for Indian again, the right-hander will look to silence critics in the remaining leg of the tournament.

It hasn't been a good tournament for the star-studded Delhi line-up. Having lost all their matches so far, the team needs to get their act right against disciplined Sunrisers.

One common thing in all defeats has been failure at the top of the order. The duo of Unmukt Chand and David Warner has not clicked so far. Warner is looking good but the aggressive opener is not getting enough support from the other end. In all probability, Chand will make way for senior pro Virender Sehwag today.
