Batting is most certainly the Gujarat Lions’ stronger department. In Aaron Finch, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina and Dwayne Smith, they have a formidable top order. Add an in-form Dinesh Karthik into the mix, and you have a line-up capable of posting big totals or chasing down tall scores regularly. Keep a close watch on Raina in particular; in a line-up filled with destructive batsmen and stroke-makers who can destroy opponents in a matter of minutes, the left-hander is the only one capable of dropping anchor and accumulating runs, or shifting gears seamlessly when the need arises.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner has led from the front; the left-hander has been the team’s top-scorer in five of his team’s nine victories. That he has 213 runs more than the team’s second-highest run-getter best illustrates how prolific the Australian has been. Keep an eye on the two other left-handers in the line-up. In this high-stakes contest, one wouldn’t be surprised if Shikhar Dhawan opts to play the role of anchor. Yuvraj Singh made his biggest contribution in the previous match; his body language showed he was pumped up and keen to make a contribution, and not surprisingly he timed the ball well in his 30-ball 44.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have played 15 matches this season. In those, David Warner has been their top-scorer on 8 occasions, while Shikhar Dhawan was top-scorer in 5 other matches. Yuvraj Singh and Eoin Morgan were top-scorers in one match each.
The Gujarat Lions have won only one of the five matches they’ve batted first in. Their record in run-chases is just the opposite; they’ve won eight of their 10 run-chases in VIVO IPL 2016.
The Gujarat Lions and Sunrisers Hyderabad have both played one match at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground this season; both teams ended up victorious.
