Preview for GUJ vs KER Dream11 Contest:
Gujarat have had reasonable success in the domestic circuit in the last 5-6 years, a run under Parthiv Patel which included a Ranji Trophy triumph and also two trophies of the tournament that begins tomorrow. However, the challenge will be all new and exciting this time under the stewardship of Piyush Chawla.
They kick-start their campaign against Kerala, who have a good mix of young and experienced cricketers themselves. Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa and Sachin Baby will be crucial for the side, and it’ll be interesting to see how the returning Indian fast bowler S Sreesanth fares. He will be in action at some stage of the tournament.
Probable Playing XI
Piyush Chawla (C), Siddharth Desai, Chintan Gaja, Chirag Gandhi, Roosh Kalaria, Umang Kumar, Priyank Panchal, Jayveer Parmar, Het Patel, Hardik Patel, Ripal Patel

The temperatures in Delhi are beginning to drop, and we might see a lot of these cricketers in full sleeves. The fast bowlers will relish bowling in these conditions.
The conditions in the Palam stadium are expected to be nice and tidy for the batters in the first few games. Teams batting first can reap a lot of rewards, and bowlers could find decent swing as well. Any total in excess of 170 can be match-winning.
GUJ vs KER Dream11 Prediction
