Can Raina lead Gujarat to a win? [Sportzpics]

Delhi Daredevils host Gujarat Lions in a game that sees both teams desperately needing a win to keep their playoff hopes in the Indian Premier League [IPL] alive.

Delhi finally managed a win in their last game after having lost five successive matches previously.

On the other hand, Gujarat came up against a magnificent century from Ben Stokes, which has made their chances of qualification almost an impossible task.

TEAM NEWS, SQUADS, PREDICTED XIs

DD SQUAD: Mohammed Shami, Karun Nair, Sam Billings, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Amit Mishra, Shreyas Iyer, Zaheer Khan, Sanju Samson, Chris Morris, Carlos Brathwaite, Rishabh Pant, CV Milind, Khaleel Ahmed, Pratyush Singh, Angelo Mathews, Corey Anderson, Kagiso Rabada, Pat Cummins, Ankit Bawne, Aditya Tare, Murugan Ashwin, Navdeep Saini, Shashank Singh, Ben Hilfenhaus, Marlon Samuels.

Kagiso Rabada was quite expensive in the previous match, going for 59 runs from his four overs. So, don’t be surprised if Pat Cummins returns to the team in place of the South African pacer.

If captain Zaheer Khan is fit, he could return to the playing XI instead of Jayant Yadav.

PREDICTED DD XI: Samson, Nair (c), Pant (wk), Iyer, Anderson, Morris, Mathews, Cummins, Jayant, Mishra, Shami.

GL SQUAD: Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, James Faulkner, Brendon McCullum, Aaron Finch, Dwayne Smith, Dinesh Karthik, Dhawal Kulkarni, Praveen Kumar, Andrew Tye, Ishan Kishan, Pradeep Sangwan, Shivil Kaushik, Shadab Jakati, Jaydev Shah, Nathu Singh, Basil Thampi, Tejas Singh Baroka, Manpreet Gony, Jason Roy, Munaf Patel, Chirag Suri, Shelly Shaurya, Shubham Agrawal, Pratham Singh, Aksh Deep Nath, Irfan Pathan, Ankit Soni.

Andrew Tye’s injury came as a big blow for the Lions, especially with Dwayne Smith not in great form with the bat.

They will probably stick to the same team that played in the last game.

PREDICTED GL XI: McCullum, Kishan, Raina (c), Finch, Karthik (wk), Smith, Jadeja, Faulkner, Sangwan, Thampi, Soni.
