Gujarat vs Lucknow key player battles

Rashid Khan vs KL Rahul 

While KL Rahul has been in impressive form in the previous few editions of the Indian T20 League, he has somewhat struggled against Rashid Khan. The Afghanistan leg-spinner has dismissed KL Rahul thrice in five innings in the Indian T20 League.

Interestingly, Rahul has been dominant against pacers but has found it challenging when facing spinners on the spin-friendly Indian pitches. Apart from being dismissed three times, Rahul has scored just 18 runs in 30 balls that he has faced against Rashid.

The Australia pacer has dismissed Hardik twice in four innings in the Indian T20 League. The India all-rounder has managed 27 runs in 22 balls at a strike rate of 122.72.
