Match 6 Vivo IPL T20 2016 GL vs RPSG
Gujarat Lions displayed an impactful show of T20 Cricket. Courtesy, the opening pair of Aaron Finch and the Mr. Blitzkreig Brendon McCullum. Pune finished with 163/5 and it was always going to be easy for guys like McCullum, Finch, Raina to chase. But with Pune’s bowling unit and MS Dhoni’s captaincy, it might not be easy for Gujarat Lions to reach the total with ease. But Pune’s bowlers were blasted all over the ground. RP Singh and Ishant Sharma were of no impact. Dhoni going with these two would be facing a very serious shortage of inceptive quick bowling in the tournament. Both kept leaking runs at regular intervals and RP Singh didn’t even complete his spell. Ishant Sharma went for 39 in his 4. The moment to cherish came in from the Ashwins. When R Ashwin was on song and completed his spell with economic figures of 0/26 off his 4 Overs, M Ashwin chipped in with couple of wickets and that too of the dangerous Finch and skipper Raina. Rajat Bhatia and Mitch Marsh were hit for runs as both of them who were quite effective in their previous outings against Mumbai were ineffective against the Lions. With this win the Gujarat Lions topped the Points table with 2 wins.
M Ashwin (2/31)
