Indians to face Lions at Rajkot

Indians to face Lions at Rajkot

Led by Harbhajan Singh and Mitchell McClenaghan and ably supported by Jasprit Bumrah and Krunal Pandya, the Mumbai Indians' attack has emerged as one of the strongest and it's also one of the main reasons for their brilliant start to the campaign which has seen them win six of the eight matches. But unfortunately, Mumbai lost all the two wickets in the next two balls.

Bowling the Super Over with Gujarat Lions needing 11 runs to clinch a thriller, Bumrah stole the show as he gave away just 6 runs with the ideal mix of yorkers and reverse swing doing the trick. Aaron Finch's blitzkrieg 34-ball 72 also helped GL to clinch the match but it will remain a one-sided manner. Krunal and indeed, Hardik Pandya, have become such vital players to Mumbai that finishing games off without them has become compulsively hard. Mumbai, on the other hand, will know two more wins and they will have one foot in the play-offs and that should prop up the side.

It didn't work out in the last game as he could only manage 16 runs, but we saw a glimpse of his talent against the Mumbai Indians.

Team Gujarat will be hoping that their captain Suresh Raina is completely fit. This after Mumbai Indians were bowled out for 153 in reply to Gujarat Lions' 153/9.

Bowlers Ravindra Jadeja (28), Faulkner (21) and Andrew Tye (25) gave themselves something to bowl at with some late hitting that carried the Lions past 150.

Ferguson then had Stuart Binny caught at fine leg before Imran Tahir (3-18) grabbed three wickets in quick succession and reduced Royal Challengers to 82-8.

The next ball was wide but Bumrah made a comeback with another good delivery that was dot ball.

The Lions ended their innings on a high, with Ankit Soni depositing the final ball of the innings into the stands at midwicket; the Lions had added 53 runs in the final five overs and finished at 153-9. Last but not the least is Harbhajan Singh, who has now bowled 26 overs in seven matches with an astounding economy rate of 5.88. Krunal Pandya returned career-best figures of 3-14 - which included three middle-order wickets, while Jaspit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga picked up two wickets apiece. But despite all that Parthiv, who had years of experience playing in this part of the world, kept going with nine boundaries and a six off Irfan Pathan. In the ninth over, the Lions suffered another blow when Dinesh Karthik was deceived in the air to be stumped by Parthiv Patel.
