Rising Pune Supergiant will take on the Gujarat Lions will come up against each other in Match 39 of IPL.
After languishing in the bottom-half of the table, Supergiant notched up four wins in their last five matches to grab the fourth place. Currently on 10 points from nine games with five wins in their kitty; a win on Monday would ensure that the RPS stay in top-four. This will strengthen their chances of making the play-offs in the 10th edition of the IPL.
In contrast, the Lions are at fifth with eight points from nine games. They need to win rest of their matches to keep the chances of booking a play-off berth alive.A�Gujarat Lions must be gutted that they couldna��t finish well in the previous match against the Mumbai Indians. Suresh Rainaa��s team did extremely well to drag the match to the Super Over. Despite the presence of two destructive batsmen a�� Brendon McCullum and Aaron Finch; Lions fell well short of the 12-run target in the one-over bash.
Rising Pune Resurgence
Rising PuneA�would draw confidence from their comprehensive 61-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore here last night. Pune bowlers rose to the occasion, defending a sub-par total of 157. They rode on brilliant bowling by Imran Tahir (3/18) and man- of-the-match Lockie Ferguson (2/7). Even Jaydev Unadkat, Daniel Christian and Washington Sundar chipped in with a wicket apiece.
Skipper Steve Smith would be keen to address the issue of inconsistent batting when they face the Lions. But with the likes of Smith, MS Dhoni, Manoj Tiwary and Rahul Tripathi being among the runs so far RPS would hope for them to fire in unison tomorrow.

Injury Woes for Lions
The Lions have had problems with their bowling, and their problems have been compounded further. Leading wicket-taker Andrew Tye is ruled out of the rest of the season with a dislocated shoulder.
If you find the names of Brendon McCullum and Suresh Raina in any team list, they will be the most important batsman in that line-up. The former is due for a big score after three consecutive single-digit dismissals. Raina is the teama��s top run-getter and A�will be keen to get a big one.
