Faced with a do-or-die situation, defending champions Sunrisers would go all out against a struggling Gujarat Lions and clinch the last-available spot in the IPL Play-offs, when the two teams clash, here tomorrow.
David Warner was out of touch in the last game that he played but still he consists the ability to take on any bowling attack that is up against him.
Coming to open the batting for SRH, Warner and Shikhar Dhawan managed to provide the fans with some fireworks. Gujarat, on the other hand, somehow looks inconsistent but still, the team is worth to perform in front of the team Hyderabad. After a brilliant show in their debut season in 2016, this wasn't the best effort from the Gujarat outfit. In his absence, now the hard responsibility has been transferred Basil Thampi.
Experienced Dinesh Karthik always comes to rescue as every time he scores something big but this time even he failed to do something incredible.
For much of the first innings, the Sunrisers looked likely to be facing a chase in excess of 200 as Gujarat openers Dwayne Smith and Ishan Kishan set off at a ferocious pace. Ravindra Jadeja kept chipping away but had no support. Youngsters Basil Thampi and Dhawal Kulkarni make way for veteran fast bowlers Praveen Kumar and Munaf Patel. Lions captain Suresh Raina lamented the lack of good bowlers in his side. They have lost a few close matches but they might just play party poopers for SRH and pull off an upset. But they did so in style by registering a comfortable eight-wicket win over rivals Gujarat Lions. Green Park pitch is the very supporting pitch for the team now. It was a 133-run third wicket stand between Warner and Tamil Nadu one-day captain Shankar that sealed the issue after Shikhar Dhawan (18) and Moises Henriques (4) were dismissed cheaply.

The creature appeared just off Indonesia's Maluku province - some fishermen were convinced it was the remains of a giant squid . Remains of the giant squid. "From the looks of it, it's unclear how many people can fit in this creature".
SRH now have 17 points from 14 games.
Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss 15:55: Yuvraj Singh has not yet recovered from his finger injury.
Siddharth Kaul and Mohammad Siraj are touted as the fantastic players from the team SRH. Siddarth Kaul was welcomed with a nonchalant six over fine leg and Rashid Khan was received with another imperious one over midwicket that also brought up his 50.
Siraj then ended his spell by bowling James Faulkner and Pradeep Sangwan in consecutive balls and another burst of three wickets in four balls ended the innings, Bhuvneshwar Kumar striking with the first two balls of the final over to wrap things up.
