Indian Premier League (IPL) 10 has not worked wonders for both Gujarat Lions (GL) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). It is expected to be a riveting contest between the two teams are in dire need of a win to get themselves placed up in the IPL 2017 standings. Even after Virat Kohli’s return to the side has not boosted the morale with RCB losing two games in a row upon his arrival. The injury-struck RCB have not been able to strike a winning combination yet.
With AB de Villiers ruled out for the GL vs RCB clash it is a possibility that Chris Gayle makes a comeback into the side. Shane Watson’s berth in the side is in danger as well as he has not been able to perform as a stand-in captain, batsman or bowler. Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly too felt that Watson should be replaced.
On the other hand, GL lost their first two matches quite comprehensively. They were able to find the find the right blend in their third game with Andrew Tye coming into the fold. His hat-trick on debut turned tables for GL. Though in the previous game, they lost in a close game, Suresh Raina’s side will be striving to bounce back. Dwayne Bravo’s availability is still a question mark.
