Gujarat Lions have managed to get to a fine total of 172 runs in 20 overs after they scored 132 for 4 after 15 overs as they got superb start right at the beginning. Wickets in the middle overs got the Delhi Daredevils back into the game. It was some sheer hitting by McCullum and Smith at the top of the order but the middle order batsmen failed to capitalize on the start they got from their batsmen.
