In form Gujarat Lions are set to meet Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next match of Vivo IPL on 21st April at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium. GL have won all three matches played so far in the competition while Sunrisers Hyderabad succeeds to register one win in played 3 games till now.
Suresh Raina & Company is doing quite great in their debuting Indian Premier League season. Gujarat Lions (GL) are playing with right combination and their batsmen and bowlers have been doing pretty good on the field. Aaron Finch, Suresh Raina, Bravo and Jadeja have been the key players for team so far. Brendon McCullum still left to fire in the tournament.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad are struggling a lot. Eventually their batmen are letting them down in the ninth season of IPL. David Warner is in good form while rest batsmen are just struggling to even spend time on the wicket. Eoin Morgan is also other batsman who is scoring runs but not at the pace of twenty20 cricket format. SRH desperately need Yuvraj Singh to get fit and play for the team.
Ashish Nehra is also out from the injury and he might get fit to play till the next match. So Sunrisers Hyderabad need to play well and batsmen are required to take responsibility to score runs. Shikhar Dhawan must score runs while Naman Ojha has to handle pressure in the middle overs and maintain run rate.

Suresh Raina (Captain), Brendon McCullum, Ravinda Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, James Faulkner, Praveen Kumar, Aaron Finch, Ishan Kishan, Pravin Tambe, Amit Mishra, Dhawal Kulkarni.
