Hosts Gujarat Lions (GL) opener Brendon McCullum and skipper Suresh Raina were dismissed for one and 18, by fast bowler Mohit Sharma, against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), in Match 28 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016, at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Sunday. McCullum was cleaned up by Mohit in the second over, while Raina, who was going strong, too ended up having the same result, as he was bowled for just 18, while GL looked shaky in the initial overs. Currently, GL are 34 for the loss of two wickets in six overs, with Dwayne Smith on 15 and Dinesh Karthik on one. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Gujarat Lions vs Kings XI Punjab, IPL 2016 at Rajkot

Table-toppers Gujarat Lions will look to consolidate their position when they take on laggards Kings XI Punjab in an Indian Premier League match here tomorrow. Punjab are lying at the bottom of the table with only two points from six matches, while Lions have managed to perch themselves at the top of the IPL standings with 12 points in seven matches. Their confidence has been further bolstered by a three-wicket win over Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Rising Pune Supergiants last night. The Lions chased down a steep 195-run target to romp home. FULL CRICKET UPDATES: Gujarat Lions vs Kings XI Punjab, IPL 2016 at Rajkot
