Let’s talk about the DD vs GL match Preview. Gujarat Lions is not looking as a strong team even with the greatest players and their stats at the IPL points table is that they only won 3 matches out of 7 matches now and this is looking a very critical situation for them. One other strange thing is that this team qualified for the playoffs in their debut season last year with this same team but now the situation is very much different.
However, a chain of the poor performances and injuries concerns to important players meant that they ended up underperforming very badly like their key player Bravo out from this IPL season due to the injury which is a big lost for the GL. Lion only good performance in the past matches of this IPL came against the already struggling team the Royal Challengers Bangalore in which GL beat RCB by 7 wickets. Both these teams are meeting first time in this season which is looking a bit late because this is an IPL 42nd match. As far as the previous matches are concerned the two side have met twice in the previous season and have a head to head record of 1-1.
Gujarat Lions previous encounter with Delhi Daredevils was on their home ground in Rajkot. It was a sad show when the outsiders registered a great 8 wicket win. The loss could be credited to the batting failure because their total was only 149/7 after being put to bat by the opposition.
The pitch was not too much difficult to play, at least it did not look like when the wicket keeper Dinesh Kartik & Ravindra Jadeja were saving Lions or at the time Delhi was chasing the target of 149 which was not a big total. The star player of McCullum, Smith and Finch failed to stay long on the pitch and leave Lions at 24/3. Raina also achieved a start before losing his wicket at the crucial time. However, Dinesh Kartik and Jadeja got the good start and established the innings very well and ensuring the team reached a defendable total.
However, the great South African wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock and Rishabh Pant wasted no time and got the win quickly as they added 115 runs for the first wicket. All the experiments of Lion’s skipper have earned him little success so far. It has been the bowling section that has caused him difficulties and he has never looked to have found a solution for that problem. The injury to their top performer Andrew Tye only worsened the problem.
Basil Thampi is a good addition to the GL team and he seems like the only bowler who looks to have gained something from this edition and helped his team. Jadeja is not going good so far in this tournament and also the Praveen Kumar with the lack of pace could not up to the standards, Shivil Kaushik was a huge failure.
Irfan Pathan could not match the hype while others like left-arm seamer Pradeep Sangwan, left arm orthodox Shadab Jakati and the leg-spinner Ankit Soni have got only limited opportunities to show their worth. So there is a lot of hype created for this match because this match is very much important for both these teams.
