Gujarat Lions v Sunrisers Hyderabad:
Here we have the match no 15 and it will be played between the best team of the tournament so far Gujarat Lions who haven’t lost a single match and the team gaining momentum from the last victory Sunrisers Hyderabad. The match will be played at the home ground of Gujarat Lions Rajkot and will be live at 7:30 PM Pakistan Standard time.
First let’s talk about the Sunrisers Hyderabad side who finally managed to score points on the table and now they have gained some momentum and some confidence. Sunrisers Hyderabad who lost their first 2 matches but now won their last match against Mumbai Indians and now their heads are high. Sunrisers gained momentum as their captain David Warner led from the front and his blistering knock of 90 has totally changed the game towards their side. The only disappointment for them is the continuous failing of Shikhar Dhawan who failed in the 3rd match again and now Sunrisers have to take some bold decision on his inclusion in the team. As a whole their batting is looking good and if they continue to do so they have bright chances of getting something very good for the team. Their bowlers have done an excellent job from the last 2 matches. The way all of their bowlers have bowled specially Mustafizur Rahman it was just incredible. They surely need to bowl even much better than that if they really want to beat Gujarat Lions on their home ground and a win against the top team at their home ground will be a big boost for the Sunrisers side.
Coming towards the Gujarat Lions side whose combination is working perfect from the first match and the way they have played their 3 matches it is simply magnificent. Their batting is just a nightmare for the teams who have played against them. Brendon McCullum and Aaron Finch both were awesome in specially Finch who has scored 3 consecutive 50s and now in the list of top run scorers. Suresh Raina who hasn’t clicked much with the bat but as a captain he has done his job quite brilliantly. Gujarat Lions bowlers are also contributing well in the victories the way they restricted the sides to a low total and made it easy for their batsmen to chase was surely a great thing. Dwayne Bravo was so far the top wicket taker who has got 6 wickets in the 3 matches and with a very ideal economy rate. As a whole their team has done a superb job and now they have a home match which can be an easy task but they can’t take Sunrisers lightly as they have the ability to win at any place.
Pitch of the Gujarat is an ideal wicket for the batsmen so the team who will win the toss will go for the bowl because there is some dew on the ground in the night which can trouble the team bowling first.
