Gujarat Lions captain Suresh Raina won the toss and opted to bowl first in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Mumbai Indians in Kanpur on Saturday.

Raina explained his decision, saying the wicket looked really good for batting.

Raina’s Mumbai counterpart Rohit Sharma too thought the pitch looked like a good batting wicket, adding that it didn’t look too different from the previous game at the same venue.
