Information About Gujarat Lions IPL 9 T20 Team Squad 2016:
The Lions can boast of the best bowling all-rounders in their side. And well, having Dwayne Bravo, James Faulkner and Ravindra Jadeja, they have every reason to be confident. While all of these players can contribute with the bat big time, its their bowling which has made them famous. Bravo’s off cutters, Faulkner’s back of the end slower ball and Jadeja’s quicker one, all are one of the best deliveries in their own rights. While it will be very tempting for Lions to play all 3, expect either of Bravo or Faulkner to miss out on games due to 4 international starter’s rule.
In the batting department, they can proudly boast of Aaron Finch, the No.2 batsman in ICC T20 Rankings. Finch is one of the most deadliest openers in the world cricket, and Lions can use his experience up the top. Not to forget, they also have Dwayne Smith, Brendon McCullum and the captain Suresh Raina. All these three players were team-mates at CSK, and expect a strong showing from these stalwarts. All the above four batsmen are devastating, and they will be shouldering the responsibility for runs.
While Lions can’t boast of the best bowling unit of all sides, they do have a formidable line-up. And well, any side having Dale Steyn will consider themselves having upper hand. While Steyn’s show in T20 World Cup was poor, it would require a big time fool to doubt what he can do. He will be supported by Praveen Kumar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Pravin Tambe and Andrew Tye, who are all good in their own ways. Definitely not the best bowling unit minus Steyn.
