IPL 2017 Live Score: Rising Pune Supergiant vs Gujarat Lions #IPL




The nail-biting fun, thrill and tension at Indian Premier League (IPL) have just begun. With MI, KKR and SRH are set to qualify for this year’s Play-offs, the vacant spot of number four is now a matter of “bone of contention” for the rest of the teams. However, if we remove DD and RCB from this race since both teams have almost lost all chances to reach into top four, then KXIP, RPS and GL are in the fray. They will play their hearts out to grab the fourth spot and break into the play-off stage.

In recent times, Gujarat had showed some spine demonstrating fantastic cricket on ground including last over thriller against the upbeat MI a day back though for a losing cause.

Gujarat Lions are expecting to put up a similar fighting performance at a match against team Pune on Monday. Gujarat Lions are now marching aggressively in the tournament yet they still need to correct their fielding skills because as the tournament is reaching its knock-out stage, the margin of victory is becoming narrower and narrower. Contrarily, RPS have a good fielding side.

RPS are eyeing to win big against GL at home. They have recently outwitted RCB in a style denying them to reach even three figure mark while chasing Pune’s 157. Experienced Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Tripathi, Steven Smith and Manoj Tiwari form the core of RPS’s batting, while Dan Christian, Shardul Thakur and Imraah Tahir form the troika of Pune’s bowling.

Gujarat have a good batting line up too including the big hitters like Dwayne Smith, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina, Aaron Finch and Dinesh Karthik. Their batting is satisfactory but bowling requires a lot of hardwork.

Now that Gujarat’s bowling spearhead Andrew Tie is out of IPL, it will be really difficult for Gujarat Lions to restrict opponents at moderate total. The bowlers need to play as a unit and give frequent breakthroughs if Lions really wish to reach into the play-offs. Tye picked up 12 wickets from 6 games. In his absence, Thampi, Faulkner, Nathu Singh and Ravindra Jadeja have to bowl exceedingly well to steer Gujarat Lions into the knock out round.

Predicted Playing XI (Both Teams)

Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS): Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Tripathi, Steven Smith(Captain), Ben Stokes, MS Dhoni (Wicket Keeper), Manoj Tiwary, Daniel Christian, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir and Jaydev Unadkat.

Gujarat Lions (GL): Suresh Raina (Captain), Basil Thampi, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik (Wicket-Keeper), Praveen Kumar, Brendon McCullum, Nathu Singh and Praveen Kumar.

Head to Head record: Gujarat Lions (GL) have 3-0 invincible win records against Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) in their 3 previous clashes.

Match Result Prediction: Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) will win.

Venue: Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune. The match starts from 8 PM onwards on SONY ESPN.
