Rajkot: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Gautam Gambhir won the toss and elected to field against Gujarat Lions (GL) in the third match of the 2017 Indian Premier League at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium here on Friday.
“We will bowl. Looks like a good wicket, will not change much. We have got Trent Boult, Chris Woakes, Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn as our overseas players. We will look to restrict them to a modest score and chase it down,” Gambhir said at the toss.
“We don’t know much about this wicket, will look to do well and put a big score on the board. We have a pretty good batting unit, will look to do well with our four overseas batting stars. Hopeful about a good game tonight,” home skipper Suresh Raina said.
Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir (Captain), Robin Uthappa (WK), Manish Pandey, Chris Lynn, Yusuf Pathan, Suryakumar Yadav, Chris Woakes, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Sunil Narine, Trent Boult.
Gujarat Lions: Brendon McCullum, Dwayne Smith, Jason Roy, Suresh Raina (Captain), Aaron Finch, Dinesh Karthik (WK), Manpreet Gony, Praveen Kumar, Shadab Jakati, Dhawal Kulkarni, Shivil Koushik.
