Gujarat Giants vs Manipal Tigers Team News:
Gujarat Giants have won both of their matches so far. In fact, they have already trumped their next opponents in the third match of the tournament. The Virender Sehwag-led side has shown a batting masterclass in the first match and bowling superiority in the second. With the likes of Sehwag, Kavin O’Brien, Tillakaratne Dilshan, and Lendl Simmons, GG have enough firepower to thwart any bowling lineup.
Not just that, but a bowling unit consisting of Mitchell McClenaghan, Ashok Dinda, Graeme Swann and others is enough to defend decent scores.
Manipal Tigers on the other hand sit at the bottom of the table after losing both of their matches so far. The Harbhajan Singh-led side has been poor in the tournament so far. They have failed to put runs on the board in both of the matches. They would have to improve massively if they are to win the match.
