Roach debuts as Deccan bowl!

Adam Gilchrist chose to field after winning the toss on a pitch that had a sprinkling of grass at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai. Deccan Chargers, who were thrashed by Rajasthan Royals in their previous game, have made three changes: VVS Laxman, Rahul Sharma and Chaminda Vaas miss out, while Monish Mishra, Jaskaran Singh and Kemar Roach get a game.

Mumbai Indians have made only one change: Ambati Rayudu replaces the wicketkeeper Aditya Tare and will keep wickets. Sachin Tendulkar said he would have batted had he won the toss but added that he was a touch unsure about the pitch. "I don't know how it would play but it looks a fantastic wicket. I can't say what's a good total on this track; we will have to decide as we go along."

Deccan Chargers: 1 Adam Gilchrist (capt & wk), 2 Monish Mishra, 3 Andrew Symonds, 4 Herschelle Gibbs, 5 Rohit Sharma, 6 T Suman, 7 Venugopal Rao, 8 Jaskaran Singh, 9 Pragyan Ojha, 10, RP SIngh, 11 Kemar Roach.

Mumbai Indians: 1 Sachin Tendulkar (capt), 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Saurabh Tiwary, 4 Kieron Pollard, 5 Dwayne Bravo, 6 Ambati Rayudu (wk), 7 R Sathish, 8 Ryan McLaren, 9 Harbhajan Singh,10 Zaheer Khan, 11 Lasith Malinga.
