Tricky target to play for Gujarat Lions
Rising Pune Super Giants won the toss and elected to bat first here at Rajkot against the Gujarat Lions. The man on form of the first match against Mumbai Indians for RPSG Ajinkya Rahane went early. But Kevin Pietersen and Faf du Plesis made merry of Gujarat bowlers as they brought 100 partnership in quick time.
Gujarat Lions came back strongly picking up Pietersen and du Plesis at quick succession. Smith was also unsuccessful in his first stint with Pune and it came down to Dhoni and marsh towards the end to get some respectable total on the board. Pravin Tambe, Bravo and Jadeja were the pick of the bowlers. Dhoni’s quick fire 22 off 10 balls gave Pune some runs to play.
