The two new entrants of the IPL take on each other in what is a must win encounter for the Gujarat Lions. With BCCI announcing that Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will be making a comeback in 2018, this could be the last chance for these two teams to win the title, as it is most likely that they would be making way for RR and CSK next year. Unless the BCCI decides to hold a 10 team event.
The Lions are in free fall right now. And with Andrew Tye being ruled out of the event things look to be heading southwards for them. Their overseas stars need to shoulder more responsibility and get the job done, or else the playoff spot will remain a distant dream.
Rising Pune Supergiant must be on cloud 9 after demolishing RCB in the last game. Their middle order looks to be in decent form and they could be buoyed by Stokes’ return for this game. Ajinkya Rahane’s form is a matter of concern, as even when has got going, he hasn’t really scored very quickly. Lockie Ferguson put up a stupendous performance in the last game, taking the nonchalant RCB batsmen for a ride.
The Pune track hasn’t been a batting paradise this season. 160 has been par.
Let’s get to business now!
