Motivated by the morale-boosting four-wicket win against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their last Indian Premier League (IPL) match, Gujarat Lions will be aiming to keep the momentum going when they face Kings XI Punjab at home on Sunday.
On paper, there is not much to choose between the two teams even though Punjab, despite being on a losing streak, are placed fifth with four points while Gujarat are seventh with the same number of points.
Punjab will take solace from the fact that they scored a near 200 total (198) against the Mumbai Indians with South African Hashim Amla scoring a terrific hundred and skipper Glenn Maxwell also hitting some lusty blows.
However, the problem area for both the teams has been bowling which has let them down on most occasions. Both the teams are heavily dependent on the Indian bowlers, who have failed to rise to the occasion when their teams needed them the most.
As both teams look to pick up form to resurrect their respective seasons, this game in Rajkkot could prove to be a pivotal one.
