GT Vs DC: Both teams displayed nice middle-order strength to win games that seemed tough to win at various points. Delhi Capitals fought hard against Mumbai, with some young talent on display, helping win. In a battle of the new teams, Gujarat managed to get the better of Lucknow nicely as well.
They displayed wonderful bowling strength, with plenty of options and hung around well with the bat to win the game. Shami in particular was nice with the ball allowing the other bowlers to come in with ease and ease the game for their side.

Young Lalit Yadav has been in and out of the eleven for a while, getting consistent chances over the last couple seasons. He is a valuable batter down the order and can bowl decent off-spin and finally came to the party with a strong knock against the Mumbai Indians. Previously, he came up with some consistent performances as well in the limited opportunities, but Lalit Yadav finally looks like he can get some attention and more runs are expected from him.
