Gujarat Lions (GL) IPL 2017 Team Squad, Players, Playing XI Team Squad

The Gujarat Lions are a franchise cricket team based in the city of Rajkot, Gujarat that will play in the Indian Premier League from 2016 for only two seasons(IPL 9 and IPL 10). The team will serve as one of the replacements for Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, who were both suspended for two seasons due to alleged illegal betting by their respective owners.The franchise is owned by Intex Technologies(which is a pioneer in mobiles, IT accessories & consumer electronics since 1996) Keshav Bansal, the owner of Intex, the company that bought the franchise.Suresh Raina the league's top scorer with 3699 runs at a strike rate of 140 in 132 matches has been named captain of the new Rajkot IPL franchise,which will be called Gujarat Lions, and former Australia batsman Brad Hodge has been appointed head coach of the team.McCullum could've been chosen because He led New Zealand to World Cup final is a fantastic leader from the front. For some reasons, even though he's been terrific in IPL, and he's available for the full tournament since he's retired. But, Raina is not a bad choice either. The Indian fans would've wanted Raina as captain. He must've learnt a lot from playing under Dhoni in CSK for so many years.
