Gujarat Lions take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in what looks to be a match of redemption for both the teams if they want to make the cut to the playoffs. There are already question marks over Chris Gayle will start or not or if Shane Watson makes to to the line up. The big news from the Lions camp is that Irfan Pathan could be in the starting line-up as he has been picked last-minute to fill in Dwayne Bravo’s spot, who is missing out this edition of the IPL.

The teams have met four times, with Royal Challengers winning thrice and losing once. They have batted first in three of the four matches, posting totals of 180, 248 and 213.

Lat game was washed out and today, according to the Meteorological Centre’s forecast for Thursday, Bengaluru can expect “one or two spells of rain or thundershowers”.

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers have outstanding records against Lions. Kohli averages 91.00 and has a strike-rate of 160.58 against them, while de Villiers averages 228.00 and scores at 198.26.
