IPL 2017 Match 39 : Rising Pune Supergiants vs Gujarat Lions – Gujarat Lions Predicted XI
Gujarat Lions fought valiantly taking the contest against Mumbai Indians to the Super-Over in defence of 154, but two-time IPL champions, the Mumbai Indians, held their nerves well to register a hard-fought win in Match 35 of the Indian Premier League season 10 at Rajkot.
Could not have asked for a better game of cricket. This is what the Indian T20 League is about. We had two teams who gave it their all tonight and provided the fans with entertainment of the highest quality. It all started with Gujarat putting up a competitive total on the board courtesy a blazing knock from Kishan and some late hitting from Jadeja, Faulkner and Tye. If it weren’t for them, Mumbai would have restricted them to a low total as Krunal Pandya led the attack with a 3-fer and he was well supported by his fellow bowlers as almost all of them chipped in with wickets.
Continuing their dominance against Rising Pune Supergiants, Gujarat Lions showed a clinical performance to thrash Steve Smith-led side by 7 wickets in the IPL.Chasing a target of 172 runs, Dwayne Smith (47) and Brendon McCullum (49) put up an opening partnership of 94 to lay the foundation of an easy run chase for Gujarat.
Earlier, debutant Gujarat Lions all-rounder Andrew Tye provided the second hat-trick of the day even as Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) reached 171/8 in the IPL.

Gujarat Lions need to buck up their performance if they want to go to the playoffs. With last day Andrew Tye getting an injury and ruled out of IPL, things gonna change.Basil Thampi was the pick of the bowlers for Gujarat as he finished with figures of 3/29 in his four overs.or Gujarat, Aaron Finch and Brendon McCullum came out to bat but were held by Bumrah’s brilliant yorkers in the Super Over. With Jadeja’s prowess and hard hitters, the team can surely come up with a win again and make it worth count.Remember Tye took the hat trick against the giants last match and his unavailability will be of concern!
Aaron Finch, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina(c), Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik(wk), James Faulkner, Irfan Pathan, Basil Thampi, Ankit Soni
