In the second playoff qualifier match of Vivo IPL 2016, Gujarat Lions are set to take on Sunrisers Hyderabad on Friday 27th May. Suresh Raina will be leading Gujarat Lions while Sunrisers Hyderabad to play under David Warner’s captaincy. Let’s have a look at the probable playing line-ups for both SRH and GL in this crucial knockout encounter match in Delhi.
Playing XI (Probable)
Gujarat Lions have got solid batting line-up insights of Brendon McCullum, Aaron Finch and Suresh Raina who have played some good innings in the tournament so far. Although they have not performed consistently but still they have scored some runs that they can ruin opposition at any instance. Dwayne Smith and Dinesh Karthik have also played some good innings in the league so far that will be key once again for Gujarat Lions to play well and beat SRH to get into final.
Rvindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo’s lower order hitting is also a god addition to GL playing line-up.
Batting line-up: Aaron Finch, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik, Dwayne Smith, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo.
The way Dhawal Kulkarni bowled in the last match, GL got some more hopes in the bowling department as he took 4 wickets against strong RCB batting line up. Jakati was expensive in the first qualifier but can be handy on Feroz Shah Kotla wicket.
Bowling line-up: Eklavya Dwivedi, Praveen Kumar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Shadab Jakati.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are too much depended on their opening pair Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner. When these two score runs, team gets chance to put good score on the board. Middle order is still a problem for SRH and running between the wickets is also a major problem which we saw in the last game too. So they need to work on this. Yuvraj, Henriques have played some good innings in previous games and we can hope from them to do it again.
Deepak Hooda, Cuttings and Naman Ojha will also be a crucial part of SRH low order batting line-up.
Batting line-up: David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan, Marcus Henriques, Yuvraj Singh, Deepak Hooda, Ben Cutting, Naman Ojha.
Bowling has been up to the mark and terrific for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mustafizur Rahaman and Birendar Dran have bowled very well in this ninth edition of Vivo IPL and team will be hoping from them to do it again.
Bowling line-up: Bhuvneshwar Kmar, Bipul Sharma, Birendar Dran, Mustafizur Rahman.
