Kings👑XI Punjab seek a turnaround in fortunes😯as they travel to Rajkot to face the table-toppers - Gujarat🦁Lions. Kings have replaced their captain - David Miller makes way for Vijay😳:. Whether that will help Miller play with freedom and help the team's cause with the bat remains to be seen👀. Lions, meanwhile, have been playing well in vital junctures of games to secure wins from seemingly hopeless positions👏 as seen from their wins over Delhi and Pune. Though Finch is nursing a hamstring injury, Dwayne Smith has proved to be more than an able replacement👍 for them. Rajkot is expected to provide a flat deck which Lions' destructive openers will relish😋. Kings will have to get early breakthroughs if they are to break their losing streak💥.
Raina has won the toss and elected to bowl first. Chinaman bowler Shivil Kaushik keeps his place😌 in the Lions line-up while Kings XI have rung in 4⃣ changes - Gurkeerat and Cariappa get a game finally while Stoinis and Saha are back.
