Delhi Daredevils and Gujarat Lions are the teams at the bottom of the point chart, even if RCB got to be on the pit. As the league stage is moving forward to the next stage, it is time for teams to be on pressure. Gujarat Lions losing two consecutive matches, cannot afford to get defeated on the next one. If they cannot win the next match, it could be rather sidelined in the tournament. And even if they win, it cannot guarantee their stance to the final stretch. Meanwhile, Delhi Daredevils lost five matches in a row, but the last fixture was a breakthrough against the top runners up Sunrisers Hyderabad. This means, if the team wins the match with Gujarat, it can rightly claim its comeback to the competition for top spots.
Gujarat Lions skipper Suresh Raina has been slow in his last two innings. The batsman will certainly put up a strong strike. Another player on spot light is Ishan Kishan, the young batsman, who was selected to open for the team. For Delhi, the spinners might work well on their home ground. There is a probability of playing with Shahbaz Nadeem to counter the likes of Brendon McCullum, Aaron Finch, and Dwayne Smith. Also, Marlon Samuels has not played a single match so far. The player, still don’t have a prospect in the team. In the last fixtures between Gujarat Lions and Delhi Daredevils, the former won by a single run in the first and in the second, Delhi claimed the next.
Zaheer Khan, captain of Delhi is expected to rest in the upcoming match as well. Gujarat Lions will most likely to play with its squad that won the previous fight. Irfan Pathan, Gujarat Lions sees a lot in the next four matches. Meanwhile, Delhi captain Karun Nair is holding on to his magic wand of youngster play. In the last match, they nailed it with the young force and hopes to do the same in the upcoming tussle as well.
