Gujarat Lions skipper Suresh Raina won the toss and opted to bowl first against Rising Pune Supergiants in the IPL match in Pune on Friday.

Raina explained his decision, saying the pitch looked green and his side had the bowling unit to exploit the conditions.

Raina’s Pune counterpart MS Dhoni said that despite not having played enough games at the venue, he knew the fast bowlers would get enough swing.
