When Delhi Daredevils and Gujarat Lion play 42nd match of IPL on the Feroz shah Kotla ground in Delhi, then the playoffs will be at stake. Both teams would like to make the place in the playoff and one loss can end their journey.
Delhi Daredevils have won three of their nine matches. To make them a place in the playoff, four out of five remaining matches will have to win in every situation. To avoid net run rate, DD have to win five out of five.
At the same time, Gujarat Lions has won just three of the 10 matches played so far. That is, to make the prospects in the playoff they have to win four of the four matches. However, Gujarat Lions had to face defeat in some very close matches, including a super over against the Mumbai Indians. In this sense team was also unfortunate.

However, both the teams have not played a single match against each other in the IPL 2017 so far. In the last two IPL matches both teams got a one-one win. Talking about the latest form, Delhi defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last match and made a big difference. At the same time, Gujarat had to face defeat by the hands of Rising Pune Supergaints in the previous match.
However, Jason Roy’s services for Gujarat are now over and he has returned home. The same is also for Delhi, where Sam Billings has returned to the country. There is still no update on the injury of Delhi captain Zaheer Khan. Obviously Zaheer still has less chance of playing.
Zaheer failed to play in the last two matches due to injury. The team lacks their inspirational captaincy, experience and lack of a bowler. In Zaheer’s absence, Kagiso Rabada was on the verge of collapse. But one of them did not go in front of the Sunrisers’ batsmen and they were allocated 59 runs in four overs. This South African bowler is definitely desperate to improve it.
Chris Morris has played the role of all-rounder, while Mohammed Shami has spared his precise bowling. Amit Mishra is still the main spinner of the team. But they have failed to perform similarly.
Delhi Daredevils Teams – Sanju Samson, Karun Nair (Captain), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Angelo Mathews, Corey Anderson, Chris Morris, Jayant Yadav, Kagiso Rabada, Amit Mishra, Mohammad Shami
Gujarat Lions Team – Brandon McCullum, Ishaan Kishan, Suresh Raina (captain), Aaron Finch, Dwayne Smith, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, James Faulkner, Pradeep Sangwan, Basil Thumpi, Ankit Soni
