Gujarat Lions Beat KXIP by 6 Wickets

Tewatia last played an IPL game in 2015 for the Rajasthan Royals outfit.

It could be an interesting encounter when some quality players will be coming from both teams of KXIP and GL.

To get in the playoffs they will have to win todays match.

In reply, Knight Riders' explosive opener Chris Lynn smashed 84 off 52 balls, before Kings XI's bowlers made a comeback and restricted their opponents to 153-6. The effect: the required run rate, which was 7.64 after six overs, had shot to 10.25 before the start of the thirteenth over. However, those games in hand will mean nothing, if they don't beat KKR on Tuesday.

Bu Amla continued his onslaught and cleared Kulkarni over the long-on for his third six of the match. Glenn Maxwell promotes himself up the order. However, there is still a lot of work to do for the Kings XI to qualify for the playoffs. Six losses and five wins from 11 games (10 points) have left them battling for a fourth playoff place with Hyderabad (15 points from 13 matches). Kishan's 29 off 24 was not quite a match-winning knock but did the job the team needed with Smith firing. If the duo's partnership will work then it will be unbelievable for the GL. The likes of Shardul Thakur, James Faulkner, Basil Thampi and Ravindra Jadeja have failed to live upto the expectations of the side.




Due to the fact that the third and fourth-placed teams are in a do-or-die situation from match one, it becomes really important to finish in the top two, because those two teams get is one more opportunity at making the final, and that is something that can not be taken lightly. In fact, the last few overs of some of these matches keep the viewers at the edge of their seats.

Maxwell-led KXIP is playing well at the moment with series of 2 victories they are having on their pot.

He was assisted for a large portion of his innings by Shaun Marsh (58 off 43 balls) after losing opening partner Martin Guptill (2) early on.

They would be especially anxious about their inability to defend pretty big scores, as was seen against GL. The pressure on the southpaw finally did the trick as he gave away easy catch to Shaun Marsh off the bowling of Rahul Tewatia. Ishant Sharma is expected to excluded from this match as he has been expensive, so as Varun Aaron as well. "We were able to get a couple of wickets in the middle, and kept them quiet till the end", he said. Axar's 17-ball 38 and 3 for 11 eventually steal the game in front of RCB.
