Mcgrath wants to play against sachin

Missing his long time on-field rival Sachin Tendulkar, retired Australian fast bowler Glenn McGrath hopes to bowl at the master batsman when Delhi Daredevils and Mumbai Indians face off again in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

"Hopefully, Sachin will be fit in the next match. I wish him best of luck," the legendary pacer said.

Talking on the sidelines of a fashion event in the capital on Friday night, McGrath said the Mumbai team was dearly missing Tendulkar.

"If Sachin comes to the Mumbai side, it will add extra pressure on the rival team as the little champion has the capability to win matches on any given day, he said.

The Australian said the Delhi Daredevils was a balanced side and was one of the strong contenders for the title.

"We have a good combination of youth and experience. Losing the last match against Chennai felt bad but we played some good cricket," said McGrath.

Delhi Daredevils captain Virender Sehwag exuded confidence that his side would lift the IPL title.

"We have performed very well till now and the boys are enjoying the IPL format. We are sure that we will win the IPL," he said.
