This is a 2nd time in this IPL 2017 in which Gujarat Lions and Delhi Daredevils going to play with each other. The previous encounter between these teams was DD vs GL 42nd match which was one of the best matches in this IPL season. DD mentor Rahul David praises the great performance of DD team especially the wicket keeper batsman Rishab Pant who played the classy innings and scored 97 runs while chasing 214 runs and also Sanju Samson was good in that match. Check the match stats:
With 8 points from 11 matches, Delhi had held a dim hope of qualifying for the playoffs but once SRH defeated MI to move into 15 points, it was all over for Delhi team.
With 4 wins & 7 losses, DD have been hugely irregular this season. The 2012 semifinalists had urged hopes of making it to the knockout stage after pulling off impressive wins over SRH and GL and KKR. But their obscure capitulation in their last home game against MI, who bundled them out for a little 66 while chasing 213 runs to win, broke a lot of hearts. Gujarat Lions too have been troubled by their lack of depth in the bowling & they are now at the 6th place with 4 wins and 8 losses. For the 2 teams now, it would be a battle for not finishing last in the tournament. The last time both this teams faced each other, it was the DD who had the last great moments when they beat Gujarat Lions by 7 wickets at home. It was an extraordinary inning by young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who had swept away the Gujarat Lions with a 97 runs off just 43 balls recorded one of the biggest chases in IPL history. Sanju Samson, who destroyed greta innings of 61 off just 31 balls, has been their regular batsmen with 374 runs but rest of the batsmen have failed to make enough of a contribution. Gujarat Lions, on the other hand, have been dealing with injuries to their most strong bowlers Andrew Tye had to leave at a critical juncture and now opener Baz Brendon McCullum have also been sidelined due to a hamstring injury. GL seamer Basil Thampi have going averagely in this IPL with 10 wickets, while their celebrated all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been not in form. GL’s skipper Suresh Raina has scored the bulk of the runs for his team while Dinesh Karthik too has contributed significantly.
