There will be lots of expectations from Gujarat’s key players like Dwayne Smith, Aaron Finch, Ishan Kishan and Captain Suresh Raina as well. GL have a strong middle order and they won’t miss any chance to trouble the Sunrisers. Experienced Dinesh Karthik always comes to rescue the team every time the top order fails to score big.

In bowling, GL have a good combination of pace and spin. Basil Thampi, Dhawal Kulkarni, James Faulkner will spearhead the team’s fast bowling while Ravinder Jadeja is expected to play crucial role with his awe-inspiring left-arm-orthodox spin at death overs.
