RCB Captain Virat Kohli has continued his fine T20 form from the T20 World Cup 2016 and has the orange cap to his name, as he is the leading run-scorer in the tournament. Bowling has been a an area of worry for RCB and against GL the team might just be hoping that their bowlers have a good game and the batting can match that up too.

For Gujarat Lions (GL) Suresh Raina’s absence comes as a big concern as he is unavailable to the birth of his first child. Also, their net run-rate is in minus and they will be looking to sort that out as quickly as possible. GL will need their big guns Brendon McCullum, Dwayne Smith, Dwayne Bravo or Aaron Finch to fire today as they need to get back the momentum into their campaign.
