GRTG vs BWAK Team Previews

Gujarat Giants

After making a decent start to the competition, Gujarat Giants lost their way a bit in the latter half of the tournament. They ended up finishing in the 3rd spot in the points tally. Interestingly their last game was against this same opposition. They lost the match. Apart from Yashpal Singh and Chris Gayle none of the other batters managed to make a mark. The Gujarat Giants' batting order managed to score a good total of 186 runs in their quota of 20 overs. But the Gujarat Giants' bowling attack failed to contain the rampaging Bhilwara Kings batters that chased down this large total easily in the end.

The Gujarat Giants side has lost both the games they have played against Bhilwara Kings in this year's Legends League Cricket. But there are some positive aspects to their performance this year as they head off in this game against the Bhilwara Kings. One of the biggest positives to have come out for Gujarat in the last game was that Chris Gayle was among the runs. It looks as if the big West Indian has found some of his touches. But the real problem is with the Giants' bowling attack. They will have to step it up on Monday against a heavily stacked Bhilwara Kings side.

There are not many other changes likely on the side with Virendra Sehwag coming back to the team. Kevin O'Brien has been the most successful batter for the Gujarat Giants in this version of Legends League Cricket. From the five matches, he has played in the competition he has picked up 158 runs at an average of 31.60. He is also scoring these runs with a good strike rate of 161.22. Yashpal Singh is another batter that is doing a good job. He has scored 138 runs from 4 games at an average of 46.00 and a strike rate of 151.64.
