Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Gujarat Lions:
This is the 34 th Match of the tournament where Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Gujrat Lions in an important match on this Friday. Match will be played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. And will be live at 7:30 PM Pakistan Standard time.
Starting from the Hosts who have won their last match against RCB by defending the target against the best batting line up and their confidence is quite high. The way they have played this tournament so far is surely very admiring and the biggest role in their success is from their captain David Warner who has led his side from the front and is at no 3 in highest run better in this IPL. Other batsmen haven’t done much but supported their captain a lot. Big news and a good news for SRH fans is that the dazzling Yuvraj Singh is fully fit and is back in the side for the Friday match. Shikhar Dhawan, Eoin Morgan and Kane Williamson have scored runs but not consistently which is a not a good sign but overall their batting has clicked and they are happy with their batting. Moises Henriques as an all-rounder has done a terrific job for the team and has played a crucial role in victories of the team. In bowling department, it will not be wrong to say they have best bowling attack in all the teams. The way their 3 pacers Ashish Nehra Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mustafizur Rahman has bowled in power play and in the death overs it is just amazing to watch. So far they have won 4 out of 7 games and have 7 more games to go. Their position is quite stable in the tournament and just need some good matches to go for the knock out stages.
Coming towards one of the best side so far who have impressed a lot of fans with their performance in the tournament. They have won 6 out of 9 games and are at no 2 in the points table. Their success secret is the top order who have destroyed the bowling attack of every team they faced and won matches quite easily. Captain Suresh Raina who has led his side quite well but couldn’t score much so far in the tournament and remain inconsistent with the bat in this tournament. Bowlers also didn’t click much as except Praveen Kumar none of them has contained too much in the tournament. Their bowlers were quite ordinary in the death overs and that is an alarming sign for the Raina and co. Now their match is against the SRH side who last time beat Gujrat at their home by 10 wickets and totally demolished their batting and bowling so that thing will be in mind for Gujrat Lions and they need to work on their middle order as well as their bowling in death overs for this match.
Match will be in Hyderabad where pitch favors seamers and that thing will help SRH side in the match. There is no rain forecast for the match.
