Aaron Finch got his second fifty of the IPL Image: IPLT20 (BCCI)
Suresh Raina has been MS Dhoni's man-Friday for eight seasons in the IPL. Finally, he emerged out of Dhoni's shadows when the Gujarat Lions beat Pune Supergiants by 7-wickets at Rajkot.
Chasing 164 to win, the Lions came out roaring with Aaron Finch and Brendon McCullum going hell for leather. Finch brought up his second consecutive fifty in as many games and McCullum got his campaign kick started with a 31-ball 49. The opening pair added 85 runs in 8 overs and sealed the fate of the match. Suresh Raina got 24 while Dwayne Bravo remained unbeaten on 22.
