Match starts at 16:00 IST (10:30 GMT)
Venue: Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot
Umpires: Marais Erasmus, Anil Chaudhary, C Shamshuddin, Rohan Pandit
Referee: Col Chinmaya Sharma
Gujarat Lions’ winning at Eden Gardens has helped confidence in their camp. Skipper Suresh Raina came back to form with a match-winning 84 and said his needed to “restart” their season. Regardless of whether Dwayne Bravo, who on Tuesday said he was “a couple of game away” from full fitness, shows up or not stays to be seen.
Kings XI Punjab started their season with consecutive wins, and have lost four on the bob since. They appeared to start back to life in their last match, just for Mumbai Indians to annihilate an objective of 199 in 15.3 overs. Eoin Morgan and David Miller were no in that match. Manan Vohra too was also not well, because of sickness, and in the event that he has recuperated he could reclaim his part as opener and Shaun Marsh could be pushed to No. 3.
Both sides have nearly achieved a phase where anything not as much as a win would hamper their capability shots.
