Rising Pune Supergiant v Gujarat Lions is the second game of the day. Shruti looks into her cards for the outcome of this encounter. Read on or listen to her podcast here:
The Rising Pune Supergiant have really lifted their game and have made sure they’re a strong part of this season of the IPL. Today they take on the Gujarat Lions at home in match number 39.
Pune do appear to have a good overall balance to their side and this should reflect in how they perform. Their batsmen may struggle the most, but even then, they should manage to bring some respectability to their innings. Bowling seems inconsistent in front of some confident Gujarat batting. The Gujarat batsmen just need to be careful of those middle overs and maybe just making an extra effort to play sensibly could help so that they can make use of some excellent opportunities in those final overs.
As for my prediction.. it feels like a tight call, but it’s tarot advantage: Gujarat Lions.
