LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: Gujarat Lions vs Delhi Daredevils, IPL 2016, Match 31 at Rajkot

GL till now have been defending any total that their batsmen have asked them to. But now with half the tournament over looks like they lack in middle over prowess and are highly dependent on Bravo and Praveen Kumar. DD on the other hand have been lucky to have Zaheer Khan in their team who have taken over the bowling responsibilities along side the smart Chris Morris. GL against KXIP showed how vulnerable their middle order is. It was only James Faulkner and Ishan Kishan that provided some saving face for them. DD much like GL were rescued by Karun Nair and Sam Billings in their last match against  Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
