42nd Match of IPL 2017: Gujarat Lions vs Delhi Daredevils
The match is scheduled to begin on May 04, 2017. 20:00 local time (14:30 GMT)
Delhi Daredevils: Z Khan*, AR Bawne, KK Ahmed, CJ Anderson, M Ashwin, SW Billings, CR Brathwaite, PJ Cummins, Q de Kock, BW Hilfenhaus, SS Iyer, AD Mathews, CV Milind, A Mishra, Mohammed Shami, CH Morris, S Nadeem, KK Nair, RR Pant, Pratyush Singh, K Rabada, NA Saini, SV Samson, Shashank Singh, AP Tare, J Yadav
Gujarat Lions: AD Nath, SS Agarwal, Basil Thampi, DJ Bravo, Chirag Suri, JP Faulkner, AJ Finch, MS Gony, Ishan Kishan, RA Jadeja, SB Jakati, KD Karthik, S Kaushik, DS Kulkarni, P Kumar, BB McCullum, MM Patel, Pratham Singh, SK Raina, JJ Roy, PJ Sangwan, JN Shah, SS Shaurya, NB Singh, DR Smith, Tejas Baroka, AJ Tye
Brendon McCullum and Suresh Raina have scored the most runs for Gujarat Lions, 318 runs each including two fifties from 10 matches and the two will be the key men with the bat. Fireworks can be expected from McCullum who had scored a 36 ball 60 against the Daredevils last year at this ground. With Tye out of the picture and Jadeja not being much of a threat at the moment, the Lions will look to Basil Thampi and James Faulkner to deliver the goods with the ball. Thampi has taken two wickets in each of his last two games.
Gujarat Lions are sixth on the IPL 2017 league table with three wins and seven losses from ten matches. With just six points in the bag, they now need to ensure a win in their remaining fixtures to be in contention for the playoffs. In their last five matches, the team has two wins, two defeats and a tie.
Delhi Daredevils have received a massive blow as captain and key bowler Zaheer Khan is unlikely to recover from his hamstring injury in time. The pacer strained his hamstring during the game against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens and he might miss the rest of the season.
Sanju Samson has been the leading run getter for the Delhi Daredevils in this IPL so far and the team will want him to make a good contribution in this match. Allrounder Chris Morris who can be destructive with both the bat and ball is another player to watch out for. The South African fast bowler has been the most impressive of all the bowlers in the side. He also has a score of 82* against the Lions at this ground.
Delhi Daredevils managed to lift themselves off the bottom of the IPL 2017 leaderboard by ensuring what was a much needed win in their previous game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. The team is now sixth on the points table with three wins and six defeats from nine matches.
Delhi Daredevils won the toss and elected to bowl.
Delhi Daredevils won by 7 wickets (with 15 balls remaining).
Player of the match: RR Pant (Delhi Daredevils)
