Gujarat Lions are out of the race for the Play Offs but they will be hoping to end the IPL 2017 season with wins in their remaining 3 matches. They were handed a crushing defeat by Delhi Daredevils as the Daredevils made a mockery of the target of 209 runs posted by the Lions courtesy the blitzkreig of Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson. The Gujarat Lions will now be up against the Kings XI Punjab in the 47th match of the VIVO IPL 2017 at the PCA stadium in Mohali.
The KXIP are confident following their win over RCB in their last match as RCB collapsed and failed to chase a score of 139. KXIP have 5 wins in 10 matches and are desperate to move up the points table in order to qualify for the playoffs. While Gujarat have no hopes left for the playoffs, they would be playing fearlessly against Punjab.
We look at the probable XI of both the sides:
