Delhi Daredevils host Gujarat Lions on Thursday. This is an interesting match. Both the teams are fighting for survival, as they have only a mathematical chance of making it into the playoffs. Even that mathematical chance will disappear for one of the teams after this fixture. There will be the excitement of a do-or-die situation. The odds are vert attractive on 12BET.com for all three results as both these teams are utterly unpredictable.
Delhi Daredevils – Preview
The Daredevils finally woke up in their last match, against Hyderabad Sunrisers. They batted fearlessly and chased down a difficult target against a strong bowling attack. Newly anointed skipper Karun Nair led from the front. And he was well-supported by overseas pros Corey Anderson and Chris Morris and young Indian rising stars Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer.
Their bowling has always been strong. Now that their batsmen too have flourished, they will be a difficult opposition. They have just six points from nine wins. They need to win all their remaining five matches to retain the qualifying hopes. As for cricket betting, you can trust them for beating Gujarat Lions. But their qualification chances are near impossible (check odds).
Gujarat Lions – Preview
Gujarat Lions are in even direr situation. They have six points from 10 matches. Even if they win all their remaining matches they may not qualify. Still, they need to keep winning and hope that the other results go their way. One curious thing is that the team’s performance has improved as the tournament progressed. But the problem is that the team lacks depth in both bowling and batting. It does them in in crucial moments.
Prediction for cricket betting: Gujarat Lions are able to spring a surprise or two. But Delhi Daredevils will be more desperate for a win. Bet in favor of Daredevils for a comfortable win.
