Delhi Daredevils vs Gujarat Lions, XI Players, May 4, 08:00 PM

Teams:

Delhi Daredevils Probable XI:

Sanju Samson, Karun Nair (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Corey Anderson, Chris Morris, Angelo Mathews, Shahbaz Nadeem/Jayant Yadav, Kagiso Rabada, Amit Mishra, Mohammed Shami

Gujarat Lions Probable XI:
Ishan Kishan, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina (c), Aaron Finch, Dwayne Smith, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, James Faulkner, Pradeep Sangwan, Basil Thampi, Ankit Soni

History: The head to head record stands at one apiece. Lions won the first match by one run after surviving a late assault by Chris Morris whereas the Daredevils comfortably won the return clash in Rajkot.

What to expect: Inclement weather forced both teams to cancel their optional practice session on Wednesday but the forecast is very warm on match day. The surface for the previous game assisted spin and got better to bat during the chase with the dew settling in.

Team News:

Delhi Daredevils
: Zaheer Khan is expected to sit out of this clash as well as he continues his recovery from the hamstring injury. The only likely change Daredevils might contemplate is bringing Shahbaz Nadeem into the playing XI in place of Jayant Yadav.

Gujarat Lions: Despite losing the previous game, expect Lions to make no changes to their XI especially with the likes of Pradeep Sangwan and Ankit Soni showing plenty of promise.

What they said:

"We could have won it (the Pune game) easily, it was in our hands, it was a very close finish. Mumbai game, it was the first super over, we could have won that as well but it didn't go our way. Those close games would have made a huge difference in terms of being in the race (for the playoffs) but with the next four games, there is still an outside chance." - Irfan Pathan, Gujarat Lions allrounder

"We have always spoken about how we are a young team and should play like a young team. We just wanted to go there and play positively, play with intent," - Karun Nair, Delhi Daredevils captain
