TOSS TIME: DD win toss, elect to bowl first
HERE are the Players to look out for in tonight's encounter
— IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) May 10, 2017
Gujarat Lions have struggled to find rhythm right throughout the tournament despite boasting of some world class players in Brendon McCullum, Aaron Finch, Dwayne Smith, James Faulkner and skipper Suresh Raina. The Lions haven't been able to decided the batting positions for these batsmen - something which has severely hurt their campaign this year.
Lions will be without the services of McCullum, who has flew back home after suffering a hamstring injury. Gujarat have been hurt by their lack of depth in bowling and they are now at the sixth spot with four wins and eight losses.
Daredevils, on the other hand, have had a mixed campaign, where their batsmen have let them down. Led by Zaheer Khan, their bowling attack was probably the best in the business with Pat Cummins, Chris Morris and Kagiso Rabada tormenting the batsmen with their fearsome pace.
With eight points from 11 games, Delhi had held on a faint hope of qualifying for the play-off but once Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Mumbai Indians to move into 15 points, it was all over for Zaheer Khan's men.
The last time both this teams faced each other, it was the Daredevils who had the last laugh when they beat Gujarat by seven wickets at home.
It was a special innings by young Rishab Pant, who had blown away the Lions with a 43-ball 97 to script one of the best chases in IPL history.
