IPL 2017: Struggling Gujarat Lions seek to bounce back against RCB

Rajkot: Struggling to find form after three losses in four matches, Gujarat Lions would look to make the home advantage count when they take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in their IPL match on Tuesday.

The Lions had a dream debut last season by finishing third. But, they are struggling this year, losing back to back games, against Kolkata Knight Riders at home and Sunrisers Hyderabad away, before registering their first win of IPL-10 by beating Rising Pune Supergiant at home. The Suresh Raina-led side suffered a six-wicket loss to Mumbai Indians last night and they are now at seventh spot, just above bottom-placed RCB, at the league table. The Lions will be looking to get back to winning ways at SCA stadium.

Lions’ top order batsmen like Brendon McCullum, Aaron Finch, Raina and Dinesh Karthik have been in good touch but the problem has been that they have not been firing in unison. West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Smith could not do score big against Mumbai, but is very destructive with McCullum as opener. Finch did not play the game against Mumbai duo to his missing cricket kit and would shoulder the Lions innings in lower order.

Bowling has been a matter of concern for Lions in the first two matches where they picked up just one wicket, but the inclusion of Andrew Tye has added sting to the bowling attack. Tye made a dream debut against Pune by taking five wickets, including a hat-trick. He also picked up two wickets against Mumbai yesterday. Praveen Kumar looked good in the first couple of overs and gave early breakthroughs for Lions against Pune and Mumbai but he remained expensive in death overs.
