Kanpur: Kolkata Knight Riders take on Gujarat Lions in Match 51 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016 today.
Gujarat Lions will be confident with the return of their skipper Suresh Raina, who missed his first match of the tournament since 2008, as he was in Holland where his wife gave birth to a daughter.
Lions, currently ranked fifth in the points table, are a formidable unit on paper and are also one of the title contenders. As the race for the play-offs has intensified, Raina would want his boys to click as a unit.
KKR, on the other hand, are probably one of the most balanced sides in the tournament. Unlike their rivals, they do not believe in tinkering too much, as a result of which they have won two titles in the past.
Kolkata will be without Andre Russell in today's match, as the West Indian has been ruled out of the game due to a leg injury.
Here is everything you need to know about the match:
Probably playing XIs of both teams -
Gujarat Lions: Dwayne Smith, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina (capt), Dwayne Bravo/Aaron Finch, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, James Faulkner, Praveen Kumar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Shadab Jakati, Pravin Tambe
