New Delhi: While Royal Challengers Bangalore are a batting powerhouse in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016, there is no denying the fact that Gujarat Lions have one of the best bowling line-ups in the tournament.
As the two sides clash against each other in Qualifier 1 today, it remains to be seen whether Gujarat can halt Virat Kohli's incredible run-scoring spree.
The RCB skipper has been in sublime form lately, where he has accumulated over 900 runs in the ninth edition of the tournament.
RCB have bounced back from a precarious position to reach the play-offs, while GL always looked like a formidable side in the tournament.
Bangalore have world class batsmen in Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Shane Watson. On the other hand, Lions have a formidable pace attack in Dhawal Kulkarni, Praveen Kumar and Dwayne Bravo. Dwayne Smith has been a revelation for them with the ball in the last few matches and Ravindra Jadeja and Shadab Jakati are two experienced tweakers at their disposal as well.
In the last four to five matches, Kohli has looked determined to get his side through to the play-offs. And now that they have reached there, they are looking one of the serious contenders for their maiden IPL title.
Since both of these teams are ranked one and two respectively in the points table, whoever loses today will get another chance as per the rules.
