RPS vs GL Match Preview

This is an important match for Gujarat Lions as one more loss can make their way for playoff very difficult. They lost their previous game in the super over against Mumbai. GL bowlers show a good effort to restrict Mumbai on the line but Jasprit Bumrah’s magic super saved Mumbai from the blushes. Brendon McCullum, Raina and Aaron Finch are main weapon of the team.

On other hand, Rising Pune Supergiant will look to win this match and maintain their position in the points table. In the previous match, RPS outplayed Royal Challengers and now they are currently sitting at the 4th position in the points table with five wins in the 9 matches.
