Toss: Gujarat Lions won the toss and elected to field

Assessing MS Dhoni’s waning prowess in the shortest-format of the game, former India captain Sourav Ganguly has expressed his reservations about the Pune wicketkeeper being “a good T20 player” any longer.

Lions’ overseas combination is set to be revamped, with either James Faulkner or Andrew Tye making their way into the XI to beef up a bowling attack that has picked up only one wicket in two matches.

For Rising Pune, Steven Smith has recovered from an upset stomach that kept him out of the clash against Sunrisers. Manoj Tiwary, who also missed the last game following his father’s death, has re-joined the squad.

Smith has struck only 34 runs with two fours off the 39 balls he has faced against Jadeja in the IPL. He has also fallen to Jadeja four times in eight innings. No other bowler has dismissed Smith more than twice.

Lions have lost four out of six times in Rajkot. Additionally, while visiting batsmen have struck eight half-centuries and one hundred, Lions batsmen have managed to hit only five fifties.
