There isn't much to talk about these two teams in terms of stats. They are just a match old. Pune played in the IPL 2016 opening match against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede stadium. They registered a comprehensive win over the defending champions. They may not have a powerful line up that includes lot of all-rounders. But they have a line up of very experienced players and a strong batting line up. Faf du Plessis, Ajinkya Rahane and Kevin Pietersen start the line up and they have Steve Smith and MS Dhoni to follow. Mitchell Marsh also comes in handy with the bat.

Gujarat Lions would be eager to perform their best in their first ever home match. This team has a long array of all rounders right from Dwayne Bravo to James Faulkner and Ravindra Jadeja. The batting line up looks good with Raina, McCullum, Dinesh Karthik, Aaron Finch and many more. Bowlers include Amit Mishra, Faulkner, Bravo, Dale Steyn, Praveen Kumar, etc.
Interesting to know, Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni played 120 plus IPL matches in the same team. And this is the first time we will see them playing against each other.
Rajkot will be proud to host an IPL match tonight. This would be the 32nd venue to host an IPL match. All eyes would be set on the local boy Ravindra Jadeja.
Let's see who notches a win amongst these two new IPL teams. Stay tuned with HotStar and Sony Six TV networks.
