IPL 2016: Delhi Daredevils vs Gujarat Lions – Possible playing XIs; players to watch out for

New Delhi: Delhi Daredevils take on Gujarat Lions in Match 23 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016 at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium.

Gujarat Lions have been in red hot form since the beginning of the tournament and they are currently ranked second in the points table after Kolkata Knight Riders.

On the other hand, Daredevils have been brilliant under the watchful eyes of new coach Rahul Dravid. They have won three of the four matches they have played this season and are ranked third in the table.

Players to watch out for:

Suresh Raina has a great team at his disposal but according to his reputation, he has had a quiet tournament so far. He is the highest run-getter in the IPL history and the team would want him to lead from the front and hit another big knock.

Quinton de Kock has looked in sublime form right throughout this tournament and DD would want the South African to continue his run-scoring spree. The 23-year-old has already hit a half-century, as well as the first century of the tournament.

Here are the possible playing XIs of both the teams:

Delhi Daredevils: Quinton de Kock (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Karun Nair, JP Duminy, Pawan Negi, Chris Morris, Zaheer Khan (c), Amit Mishra, Mohammed Shami, Imran Tahir/Carlos Brathwaite

Gujarat Lions: Aaron Finch, Brendon McCullum, Dwayne Smith, Suresh Raina (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Pravin Kumar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Shadab Jakati, Pravin Tambe
