Gujarat Lions

The very team that impressed one and all in its inaugural season of Vivo IPL in 2016 has had a drastic turn of events coming into the IPL 2017 as it currently finds itself at the bottom of the points table. The position of GL in the points table seems to be unjustified to the talent it possesses and it has somewhat had a similar faith as compared to RCB – both team’s with great match winners in their XI but results haven’t come their way. Gujarat Lions can now play a little more freely and perhaps give opportunities to young lads sitting on the bench and experiment to see if it changes their losing run as their IPL 2017 campaign is pretty much over.

GL Vs DD Match Prediction: First Innings Score

The Gujarat batsmen showed irresponsibility with the bat in their last game against the RPS. Having gotten off to a flying start (courtesy of Ishan Kishan and Brendon McCullum), the middle order batsmen fell like a peck of cards. They’ll look to bat more responsibly in this match, 160+ is what they should easily get.

GL Playing XI Prediction

Kishan, McCullum, Finch, Smith/Roy, Karthik(WK), Jadeja, Faulkner, Sangwan, Thampi, Soni

FORM : The GL got so close to beating RPS but were yet so far. They’ve had close encounters but haven’t been able to close matches. Against RPS – they lost to Ben Stokes and not the side as it was his single-handed 103* that led his side to victory. Had he not fired, probably GL were looking at earning 2 precious points.

Delhi Daredevils

“We didn’t bat intelligently” – were the harsh words used by Delhi Daredevil’s coach in Rahul Dravid after the side’s disastrous batting performance against Kings XI Punjab, bundled out for just 67 runs. The target was easily chased by Punjab in just under 8 overs with 10 wickets in hand. The Delhi side is hoping for a turnaround at their home ground but Vivo IPL 2017 playoffs look distant – as every game from now is a potential eliminator.

FORM : DD beat the 3rd spot holders in SRH, a win that will do a lot of good to their confidence but the consistency factor remains a concern. It’s purely on the young talents in Pant, Nair, Iyer & Billings to make the DD batting strong as Morris and Anderson are bowlers who can bat, not the other way around. Even with the last win included, DD has won just 1 game out of 6 – not a record they’ll be proud of.

DD First Innings Score Prediction

DD will look to get over 150+ in their first innings. The Kotla surface is favorable to their bowlers that are rather slow in pace but make up for it with variations – the GL batting line-up though has some big hitters and therefore 150 becomes absolutely must to put on the board in the first innings.

DD Vs GL Toss Prediction for 4th May

The Gujarat Lions will win the toss and elect to bat first, putting pressure on the relatively inexperienced Delhi batting unit to chase down the total that GL set.

GL Vs DD Match Prediction 4 May 2017: Who’ll win the match?

Gujarat Lions are currently 6th in the points table but they’ve had much competitive last few games, they are simply the favourites also because of the sheer amount of international talent they’ve in their XI. We predict GL should win this battle.

DD Vs GL 4th May: Key Player Prediction

IPL Match Prediction : Brendon McCullum will come blazing for GL
IPL MatPrediction:n : Brendon McCullum will come blazing for GL

Brendon McCullum – having made 45 in the last match against RPS, McCullum was an exception amongst the GL batting unit wherein other batsmen gave away their wicket cheaply while McCullum put a price on his wicket and reached 40+. We predict he will cross 30+ in this match.
