Gujarat Lion, the Rajkot-based franchise, is one of the two new franchises which will make it way into the Indian Premier League this season. The franchise, owned by Intex technologies Ltd, picked a strong side in the player draft and the player auction. The side is led by IPL power horse Suresh Raina and features several prominent international names along with established Indian players and newbies. The side is no short of firepower and it would be exciting to see how the Lions fare in the IPL. Here in this piece, we try to list out the predicted XI of the Rajkot franchise.
1. Brendon McCullum:
Brendon McCullum represents the brash brand of cricket. Fearless and outgoing, McCullum, as we all know, can tear apart the best bowling line-ups in the world. McCullum was previously with the CSK franchise and was picked in the ‘Players draft’. His IPL record is fantastic, especially in the last two seasons. He played 14 games each in the 2014 & and 2015 edition and scored 405 and 436 runs respectively for CSK. The New Zealand legend recently retired from the game which means that fans would be eagerly waiting for him to take the field and watch him have a go at the bowlers once again.
