IPL Match – 6, Likely Playing XI Gujarat Lions v/s Sunrisers Hyderabad



Gujarat Lions are coming into this game after a massive loss in the previous game. The loss against KKR will have a huge impact on GL. Likely Playing XI Gujarat Lions will see a lot of changes. GL did not get there combination right in the previous match. They played 4 opening batsman. Dinesh Karthick had to bat higher up as he was in excellent form. Gujarat Lions need to strengthen their bowling. SRH have some great batsmen who can smash Gujarat bowlers. So primary focus of GL needs to get their bowlers right and also to get their batting combination right. Playing 4 opening Batsman in the team was ridiculous. Jason Roy can be replaced with an overseas bowler. Dwayne Smith also can be dropped for an Overseas player. James Faulkner and Andrew Tye may get a look in.
