New Delhi:

Delhi Daredevils will come up against the Gujarat Lions for the first time this season when the two teams clash in Match 42 at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground on Thursday in their bid to keep their play-off hopes alive. The home side is without their talismanic captain Zaheer Khan due to a hamstring injury. 

The home team has just received a shot in the arm after they snapped a five-match losing streak against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Mathematically, Daredevils are in the fray for the final four but they have to win all their remaining matches. Their chances also depend on favourable results from other games.

Gujarat Lions, on the other hand, are all but out of the race as they are struggling at the second last position in the eight-team tournament with just six points from 10 games.
