There are no injury concerns for the team ahead of their clash with Gujarat Lions. They had a good win in their opening game and so the skipper and selectors will not be too keen on making changes to their lineup.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have a solid top order batting lineup with David Warner being the key man. He made an unbeaten 74 and an unbeaten 93 in two out of the three games against Gujarat Lions last season. Yuvraj Singh played a blazing knock of 62 runs from 27 balls the other night and he will be dangerous in the slog overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is SRH’s most successful bowler against GL. The seamer has taken 8 wickets against them so far and he is likely to trouble them again with his swing.
Victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore in the season’s opening game was their fourth consecutive win in the Indian Premier League. Sunrisers Hyderabad have now played 8 matches at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium since last year of which they have won 5 and lost 3 which is a pretty decent record for a home ground.
Gujarat Lions will miss the services of in form bowler Ravindra Jadeja and West Indian allrounder Dwayne Bravo for this upcoming fixture. While Jadeja is recovering from finger injury and is expected to be fully fit for the team’s third game, Bravo who is suffering from hamstring injury is out for the first half of the tournament.
Gujarat Lions have a star studded batting lineup with plenty of depth. Suresh Raina and Dinesh Karthik shone with the bat against Kolkata Knight Riders. The latter seemed to be more in control and so there will be high expectations from him going into this match. The Lions had a horrible day with the ball as their bowlers allowed KKR to run away with the game. However, old horse Praveen Kumar was impressive and he was the only bowler in the side to have an economy rate of under 10. The pacer will be the key bowler for his team.
Gujarat Lions had made a fantastic debut in the IPL 2016 where they topped the points table with 9 wins from 14 matches at the end of the league stage. However, they lost both their matches in the playoffs round and so they will be coming into this game off the back of two consecutive defeats
Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and elected to bowl first.
Sunrisers Hyderabad won by 9 wickets (with 27 balls remaining).
Sunrisers Hyderabad, the defending champions of Indian Premier League, took on Gujarat Lions in their second match of IPL 2017. After a 35-run win courtesy Moises Henriques and Yuvraj Singh against RCB, Henriques was once again up to the mark alongside skipper David Warner in the comfortable 9 wicket win over Gujarat Lions who were patchy at best. Rashid Khan bagged the Purple Cap with his three wickets in the first innings to earn his side a modest 136 runs to chase.
