Ravindra Jadeja Comeback in Gujarat Lions Vs Rising Pune Supergiant
Rising Pune Supergiant
Question in detailGujarat Lions Vs Rising Pune Supergiant, match No. 13: Two consecutive losses in the first two games are enough to down a side to the bottom of the table. Unfortunately, it's Gujarat Lions this year. The side entered the playoff round topping the table with 9 wins last season. However, the beginning of the 10th edition has been all the more disappointing for the last-year table topper. With their batsmen desperately failing to leave an impression, and bowlers misfiring to defend a 180-plus total, Lions haven't played to the best of their potential so far. Hopeful of Ravindra Jadeja's comeback against RPS, Lions had suffered a blunt spin attack in both their previous encounters.
Lions are plaintively blatting rather than roaring. And the reason behind their gloom is the disappointing start to their IPL 10 campaign. Gujarat is yet to search a break with the league progressing to its 13th game on March 14. Studded with some of the world's best limited-over bashers like McCullum, Raina, Dwayne Smith and Jason Roy, Lions would need a quick turnaround if they want to be in the league race.
Bravo-Jadeja's absence has done enough damage to Lions' quest for a fine star of the season. It's still uncertain as to how long they will travel in the league without a win. The least they will be hopping now is Ravindra Jadeja's comeback for the next encounter against Rising Pune Supergiant on April 14. Jadeja's presence does make a difference given the fact that he is a game changer, consistent performer and above all world's No. 1 bowler.
Lions will be keen to recover the early damage in Gujarat Lions Vs Rising Pune Supergiant match at their home ground, Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot. Second from the bottom with two desperate losses, Pune is also not in a good stead on the point table at present. Two back-to-back losses have overshadowed Pune's clinical win to the start of the tournament. Now, they need a recast to work their way ahead in the league.
