GL vs KXIP, 26th Match – IPL 2017
Gujarat Lions are back after a much needed win over Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday. And Kings XI Punjab, who are suffering a lean patch, will be wary of the side led by Suresh Raina, when they clash at Saurashtra Cricket Stadium here in first match of the evening.
Suresh Raina produced an extraordinary performance against Kolkata Knight Riders, smashing a 46-ball 84 in his team’s four wicket wins. Both teams consists of excellent batsmen likes Raina, Brendon McCulum, and Aaron Finch, holding fort for Gujarat Lions and Glenn Maxwell, Hashim Amla, and Marcus Stoinis turning out for Kings XI Punjab.
Notwithstanding the loss to Mumbai Indians in their previous game of IPL 2017, Punjab will take a consolation from the fact that they scored 198 with Hashim Amla scoring a tremendous hundred and skipper Glenn Maxwell also producing some lusty blows. For Gujarat, McCullum with 253 runs and Raina with 243 runs, are among the top five run-getters in the tournament so far. The silver lining for Lions has been Kerala pacer Basil Thampi and his ability to bowl Yorkers has impressed observers.
Gujarat Lions will take a lot of heart from their thumping win over Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday. Both teams need a win to stay in the play-offs race, so expect a blast.
