Lions have hard hitters like Brendon McCullum, Dwayne Smith and Aaron Finch. They have played well but have failed to get a win for their side Gujarat Lions. Aaron Finch missed out on the last match because his kit wasn’t available! Today, he better make sure he carries a kit and a backup for his kit too! Dhawal Kulkarni might be playing instead of Praveen Kumar. PK hasn’t bowled well and the Lions might turn to Dhawal Kulkarni.
Lions will hope Andre Tye continues with his form and gets crucial wickets in today’s encounter. Tye has picked up seven wickets in two matches and his form he will play a key role in getting a win for Gujarat Lions.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
Royal Challengers Bangalore has been struggling to get a win, their key batsmen Chris Gayle who has performed tremendously well for RCB in last few season has failed to give RCB the start which he is known for. Pressure will be on him considering that A.B. de Villiers is injured again.
After picking up a hat-trick against Mumbai Indians in his debut match, Samuel Badree didn’t do well in the last game. He bowled four overs and conceded 32 runs and picked up 1 wicket, he was pretty expensive.
Pawan Negi has been outstanding with his bowling and will be expected to continue doing it. If Negi and Badree combine well today, life will be tough for the Lions.
