Cricket Fanatic’s likely playing XI of GL and KKR


Power hitters take on a classy batting side.

Make no mistake, Gujarat lions have only added more power to their batting with Jason Roy on the lines to make his ipl debut if given a chance. On the other side, the Knight Riders will look to continue their consistency in IPL.

News from the bench:

The only problem GL have in selecting their 4 overseas players is that they have 4 full time limited overs opening specialists and among which they can afford a maximum of 3 in the playing XI. Jason Roy might have to wait for his chance in this IPL.

1. Gautam Gambhir (capt)

2. Robin Uthappa (wk)

3. Manish Pandey

4. Chris Lynn (O)

5. Yusuf Pathan

With the likes of Shakib, Coulter Nile, Grandhomme, Ishank Jaggi they will try to tinker their combination in the later stages of the game.
