Inconsistency has been the bane of the defending champions as they faltered in the middle of the tournament after winning their first few games. Their form hasn’t been great recently as they lost 2 of their last 3 games. 

The batting is heavy with the likes of skipper David Warner, Moises Henriques, Shikhar Dhawan and Yuvjraj Singh whereas the bowling is being well led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan. Young pacers like Siddharth Kaul and Mohammed Siraj have impressed whereas spinner Mohammad Nabi too has been a force to reckon with.

As far as the Gujarat Lions’ squad is concerned, their batting has flourished throughout the tournament with Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik and Aaron Finch being consistently among runs.
