Raina and Karthik power Lions to 208

Gujarat Lions were crusing along to post a score somewhere around 230 around the 16-over stage. The DD bowlers pulled things back and conceded just 20 runs in the next three overs. The final over blitz from Jaddu would have shifted the momentum back towards the visiting team.

The Lions didn't get off to the greatest of starts losing Baz and Dwayne Smith cheaply. Skipper Raina looked scratchy and was dropped twice on 2 and 40. He along with DK put on a 133-run stand for the third wicket that provided the solid platform for a mammoth score.DD chased well against one of the strongest bowling teams - SRH. Can they make it two in two? If they get anywhere close to the target we are in for a humdinger of an encounter. The chase coming up in a short while..
