Would have been a shame if Sunrisers didn't qualify, says Warner

IPL 2017

Big-hitting Australian Aaron Finch was dismissed for 2 by Rashid Khan in the 14th over as a late collapse saw Gujarat all out for 153 with four balls remaining in their innings. With 15 points from 13 matches, they must beat Gujarat Lions to make sure they qualify for the playoffs. SRH now have 15 points having won 7 out of 13 games they have played this season.

Put into bat, Gujarat amassed a huge 195 for five before Delhi courtesy of Shreyas Iyer's 57-ball 96 pulled off a stunning run chase to win by two wickets with two balls to spare.

Afghani leg-spinner Rashid Khan has an impressive economy rate of under-seven. It has been already confirmed that GL will not participate in IPL 2018, so effectively this will be their last IPL match ever and they would love to make it memorable. From 120 for 1, suddenly Lions slumped to 120 for 4 and Sunrisers took full use of the opportunity that they got.

With 15 points from seven wins and five losses in 13 games, Sunrisers now hold the fourth spot at the IPL points table, while the Lions are already out of the game nearly with only eight points from 13 matches the team is having.

The defending champions had a must-win game in hand and Warner stitched a 126-run partnership with Vijay Shankar to take Hyderabad through.

Shikhar Dhawan started the chase in a hurry, smashing three consecutive fours off Pradeep Sangwan in the second over. He has been the lone bright spot in an otherwise disappointing campaign by Gujarat.

Not only did GL not manage 200, they only just got past 150, with the home side losing all ten of their wickets for 43 runs in just 8.3 overs. Currently, he is third in the run scoring chart with 440 runs in 13 games and would be looking to end the tournament on a high with another cracking innings. Sirah finished with a wonderful spell of 4/32 of four overs. Batsman Deepak Hooda may come in to replace all-rounder Vijay Shankar.

Gujarat seemed to have been affected much by the injury of Andrew Tye, who had emerged as their best bowler early in the event.

Gujarat Lions have made two changes by bringing in Praveen Kumar and Munaf Patel in place of Basil Thampi and Dhawal Kulkarni.

For Sunrisers Hyderabad, a lot will depend on the top 3-David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson, who have been the most prolific scorers this season.The team also has two of the most successful bowlers of IPL 10 in the form of Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
