Whew! That was an excruciating first match for the Gujarat Lions. Put on the squeeze from all sides, the Sunrisers’ bowlers did their best to the batsmen, and break them they did. After Raina fell on a low score, the interpretation of the match stayed the same grim way for the Gujarat Lions. Except for Aaron Finch, the man who shone for the Lions, with 51 runs, made with a brilliant effort. 

One thing is clear, if Gujarat Lions lose today’s match, it will be fault of the batsmen, not the bowlers.

* Four! That was an optimistic shot, and why optimistic? Because Gujarat Lions have a long way to go to save themselves from utter humiliation.
