New Delhi: As Kolkata Knight Riders' Australian opener Chris Lynn continues to remain sidelined after picking up an injury, skipper Gautam Gambhir opted to pair up with West Indian all-rounder Sunil Naraine yet again against Gujarat Lions in the Indian Premier League (IPL) today.

Naraine smashed a brilliant 42 in his 17-ball cameo, scoring runs all around park. (IPL 10, KKR vs GL – Live Blog | Scorecard)

Gujarat Lions skipper Suresh Raina won the toss and put Kolkata Knight Riders to bat in their Indian Premier League (IPL) game at the Eden Gardens here on Friday.

After scripting a four-wicket win against Delhi Daredevils in their previous game, the Knights rang in just one change bringing in Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan in place of New Zealander Colin de Grandhomme.

Gujarat, who lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore by 21 runs, brought in James Faulkner in place of Andrew Tye and Praveen Kumar in place of Shivil Kaushik.
