New Delhi: In the 3rd match of Indian Premier League's ninth edition, Kings XI Punjab will be up against new franchise Gujarat Lions at PCA Stadium, Mohali.
Kings XI Punjab will play this season under new skipper David Miller in place of George Bailey.
Retired cricketer Virender Sehwag will also play the role of a mentor this season for the Punjab franchise.
On the other hand, debutants Gujarat Lions have a power-packed batting line up.
They have explosive batsmen in Brendon McCullum, captain Suresh Raina, Aaron Finch and a plenty of top-notch all-rounders in Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja and James Faulkner.
But the weak link for the Gujarat side could be the pace-bowling department as they don't have any big name -- Indian or overseas -- except for South African Dale Steyn.
