Gujarat Lions vs Rising Pune Supergiant IPL Highlights 14 April 2017
Watch GL vs RPS highlights of the 13th IPL match played today on 14-4-2017. Watch Pune vs Gujarat highlights today. Ravindra Jadeja joined the Lions squad on Wednesday and is expected to get his IPL 2017 campaign underway at his home ground, having missed the first two games to a finger injury. Lions, however, will continue to miss the injured Dwayne Bravo, even though he had taken part in the team’s practice session on Wednesday.
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.
Of the 12 matches played at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Ground, the team chasing has won five of six games, scoring at an average of 52.66 per wicket. A run rate in excess of nine has been instrumental in four of those five successful chases being closed out before the 19th over.
