Aaron Finch hit 74 off just 47 balls as Gujarat Lions eased to a five-wicket victory over Kings XI Punjab in their first IPL match. Durham Smythe Jersey . The Aussie opener was in cruise control for much of his innings but was still able to strike 12 boundaries in a man of the match performance.He was pushed close for the award by West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo who took 4-22 as the Lions restricted Kings XI to just 161-6 and, in doing so, became the leading wicket-taker in T20 history usurping Lasith Malinga.Kings XI got off to a flying start as opening pair Murali Vijay (42) and Manan Vohra (38) took the attack to the Lions bowlers. The Inside the IPL panel discuss the Gujarat Lions first win in the IPL; a five-wicket victory over Kings XI The pair smashed 52 from the powerplay with Vijay, in particular, looking in fine form. The India international expertly finding the gaps to pick up a number of boundaries through the offside.Vohra was just beginning to get into his stride, sweeping Ravindra Jadeja powerfully into the stands for his second maximum. However, the spinner had the last laugh as he dismissed the 22-year-old the very next ball, an inside edge onto his pads looping up for Dinesh Karthik to take the catch.Jadeja struck again in his next over, pegging back Vijays leg stump as the batsman backed away trying to give himself room to hit over the offside. Aaron Finch led Gujarat Lions to a straightforward win over Kings XI That brought Kings XIs two most dangerous batsman together – David Miller and Glenn Maxwell – but the partnership was short lived as Bravo bowled both men in the space of three balls in the 12th over.Maxwell was yorked as he looked to make room for himself before a brilliant slower ball deceived Miller, dipping under his bat and clattering into the stumps.Marcus Stoinis (33) and Wriddhiman Saha (20) did their best to move things along but after both hauled out in the final over, to give Bravo his third and fourth wickets, Kings XIs total of 161-6 looked well below par.However, Gurajats reply got off to an inauspicious start with Brendon McCullum gone for a second ball duck in the first over, stumped by Saha off the bowling of Sandeep Sharma. The Lions soon got into their stride though as Finch and Suresh Raina made the most of the powerplay, both players happy to rotate the strike and quick to punish the bad balls.Raina went for 20 in the final over of the powerplay but Finch continued to ease his way through the innings, showing superb touch and timing rather than the brute force he is usually associated with.Alongside Karthik, Finch brought the required rate down to less than a run a ball and by the time he was stumped off Pardeep Sahu in the 12th over, victory for Gujarat was all but secured.There was still time for Mitchell Johnson to show off his foot skills to run out Jadeja (8) and then dismiss youngster Ishan Kishan (11) before Karthik (41 not out) and Bravo got the Lions over the line with more than two overs to spare.Watch continued coverage of the IPL on Sky Sports, with the next live action seeing Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Sunrisers Hyderabad from 3pm on Sky Sports 1 on Tuesday. Danny Amendola Dolphins Jersey . Coming off a 6-0 drubbing at Chelsea on Saturday, Arsenal endured another demoralizing result after rallying for a 2-1 lead — only to concede a fluke equalizer. Mike Gesicki Dolphins Jersey . A last-minute leveler ensured the two-time defending champion remained nine points ahead of Roma, which drew 0-0 at bitter rival Lazio in the capital derby.This time last week, Montreal was awash with nostalgia for their Expos as Olympic Stadium formed the backdrop to Major League Baseballs weekend residency in la belle ville.  On Saturday afternoon, the Impact reclaim the building when they face the New York Red Bulls for the second of three fixtures scheduled at the venue this season. MLSs 19th franchise kicked off their eve of game preparations very early Friday morning with news that 2012s first overall SuperDraft pick Andrew Wenger had been traded to the Union. In return, the Impact picking up from the city of brotherly love Jack McInerney. A raw talent, who just like the Impact, got off to a flyer in 2013. McInerneys Midas touch in front of goal through spring 2013 got such rave reviews it got the attention of Americas favourite German, Jürgen Klinsman – who named the Tennessee native to last summers US Gold Cup squad.  Living in this era of instant gratification, the Twitter jury needed no time to deliberate on which club got the better of the deal. It still baffles why in 2012s Super Draft Jesse Marsch took Wenger when the considered opinion was Darren Mattocks. Not meant as a slight to Wenger, its just that Mattocks ticked much more of the better prospect boxes going forward. In a chat I had with Mattocks on the eve of that draft, the young Jamaican said he modeled his game on Liverpools Fernando Torres. Having watched Wenger up close over this time Im still not sure he himself is fully convinced he can fulfill whats required of an out and out striker in MLS. However moving to his home club provides Wenger with perfect opportunity to fulfill his potential and prove all his naysayers wrong.  As for the Impact, the diminutive McInerney – whose goal production dramatically dried up as the 2013 season wore on – working in tandem with Di Vaio is a mouth-watering prospect. Learn at the Italians shoulder he most certainly must. Thats for the future. As is which club ultimately reap the greatest rewards for the deal. Saturdays match brings together a pair of teams still in search of their first three-point outing of the season. For those who state the Impacts poor start is merely a continuation of their shambolic under- performing selfs from the end of 2013, how then to quantify the Red Bulls poor start? This was a club which marched quite resplendently to a Supporters Shield title on the back of a sole defeat in their last 10 matches. This season has been a mirror of 2013s 0-2-2 start for the Red Bulls thanks to a 95th minute goal from defender Péguy Luyindula during last Sunday afternoons 1-1 draw at home against Chivas. Nobody needs reminding how the Impact salvaged the late tie against McInerney et al in Chester, PA.  Guilty as charged. Hands up. Not only did I think Di Vaio would take at least a few games to get in the groove and find his scoring boots afterr serving his 3 match suspension I also wondered without his school child friend Alessandro Nesta no longer in tow how that would affect. Jerome Baker Dolphins Jersey. Apparently not in the slightest. Whether or not the 38-year-old gets to take the same Olympic Stadium pitch with a certain 36-year-old Frenchman stepping out for the Red Bulls is quite literally up in the air. Henry trained with his team this morning at their multi-million dollar training facility in Hannover, NJ where following lunch they were due to board a late afternoon flight to Montreal. Thierry Henrys aversion to so termed plastic pitches is well established in his time in the league. He, along with 2010 MLS defender of the year Jamison Olave, stayed home when the Red Bulls opened their season in Vancouver. My, how they missed Olave as the Whitecaps set upon their opponent with a level and intensity any club will do well to match through the season! Which begs the question – what happens if the Whitecaps host the Red Bulls in the MLS Cup? Having arrived stateside following South Africa 2010, Henry is out of contract at the end of the season. Although not ever one to have the likes of Ellen DeGeneres have him suit up as a store clerk (Henrys more inclined to take the subway to work) there is no denying the additional magic the ex-Arsenal and Barca man has provided MLS. Im told Henry has quite the goal scoring record against the Impact. Goals have been in the shortest of supplies for the Impact so far this season – whilst conversely they are still conceding the softest of goals. As they did through the course of the pre-season. Elementary defensive errors are supposed to be the easiest to iron out as a season progresses.  Four of the Impacts next five games are at home – including, as they see it, their real home opener at Saputo Stadium on April 26 against McInerneys old flame the Philadelphia Union. There can be no more excuses. Unless a fully 90-minute focused team shows up and even without the services of one of the most feared strike forces at their disposal you can be sure the Red Bulls will exploit a team low in confidence and likely at its most vulnerable since Davy Arnaud led them out in Vancouver back in March of 2012. An expected crowd of 25,000 plus will be hoping that team which started 2013 so magnificently rediscover that form. As does the Impacts new recruit who will take the Olympic Stadium action in from his suburban Philadelphia home. Dont be surprised after last Saturdays unprecedented show of emotion and walk down Expos memory way if the aroma of peanuts and crackerjack is still in the air.
