Delhi Daredevils win toss, opt to bowl against Gujarat Lions

The Chennai and Rajasthan franchises were also subsequently suspended from the IPL for two years after key officials from both teams were found guilty of illegal betting. 2 Number of times Delhi Daredevils have chased down target of 190 or more in this edition - only side to do so.

Samson played on to his stumps while attempting to smash a short ball off Pradeep Sangwan.

RPS will hope the mercurial DD batting lineup has an off day.

New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson made a spectacular catch for the Daredevils in the outfield dismissing Lions' Dinesh Karthik.

Predicted victor: Delhi Daredevils.

The partnership was crucial as the two came together when Lions had lost Suresh Raina and Ishan Kishan quickly. It was then that Cummins joined Iyer and the duo cut loose against Pradeep Sangwan in the 15th over, slapping him for two four's each. When their 61-run stand, for the seventh wicket, finally ended in the 19th over, the deficit stood at just 14 off 10. Does Pat Cummins have a trick or two to stop Smith?

An insider revealed, "In general the cast and the crew of Dance Mom's are not at all sad that Abby was sentenced". She must surrender herself in 44 days and is going to get through the sentence by pretending it's a film shoot.

Their 57-run stand off 34 balls pushed Daredevils to 71 for two in seven overs.

The strategic time-out once again brought smiles back to the Pune camp, but not before Pant had smacked leg-spinner Adam Zampa for a four and six.

Earlier, Australian Aaron Finch's flashy 39-ball 69, laced with six fours and four sixes helped Gujarat Lions recover from the early jolts and post a mammoth 195/5.

The Delhi Daredevils are not in contention for a playoff spot, but the young team will want to finish the season on a high.

James Faulkner and Ravindra Jadeja struck a few lusty blows to take their team closer to 200.

RPS would have their task cut out as they face an inspired Delhi Daredevils side who snatched victory from the jaws of defeat thanks to a magnificent knock by Shreyas Iyer in their previous encounter against the Gujarat Lions.
