IPL 2017: Sunrisers Hyderabad must roar against Gujarat Lions at Kanpur today

Young fast bowler Mohammed Siraj was the most impressive bowler for the Sunrisers as he registered his career-best bowling figures in the IPL.

Even if Hyderabad lose, they can still go through provided Kings XI Punjab (14 points from 13 games) are not able to beat Rising Pune Supergiant on Sunday.

Australian opener and Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner on Saturday doffed his hat on the abundant bowling talent India has, especially in the shorter formats, after the domestic bowlers played a key role in his side sealing a berth in the IPL play-offs.

Henriques' solitary over was expensive, going for 12 runs while Siraj (4-32) was the best of the Sunrisers' bowlers.

The duo added an unbeaten 133-run stand which came from just 91 deliveries and somewhat incredibly included zero sixes. From 120 for 1, suddenly Lions slumped to 120 for 4 and Sunrisers took full use of the opportunity that they got. Past year too, Sunrisers completed a double on the Suresh Raina-led team with a couple of easy wins in the league stages.

Coming to open the batting for SRH, Warner and Shikhar Dhawan managed to provide the fans with some fireworks.

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

Last season as well, Warner had lead Sunrisers Hyderabad to the title, scoring a massive 848 runs on the way, falling only behind Virat Kohli's 973 runs.

At the start of their innings, Gujarat needed hope and they got it from Praveen Kumar (4-0-22-2). He has been the lone bright spot in an otherwise disappointing campaign by Gujarat. The game is about to be played at Green Park stadium, which is situated in Kanpur. Sirah finished with a wonderful spell of 4/32 of four overs.

Gujarat Lions have already been knocked out of the tournament, as a result, this match will be just a matter of restoring some pride for them.

Gujarat Lions: Aaron Finch, Ravindra Jadeja, James Faulkner, Dhawal Kulkarni, Pradeep Sangwan, Basil Thampi, Ankit Soni, Dwayne Smith, Ishan Kishan, Suresh Raina (c) and Dinesh Karthik (w).

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (C), Tanmay Agarwal, Ricky Bhui, Bipul Sharma, Ben Cutting, Shikhar Dhawan, Eklavya Dwivedi, Moises Henriques, Deepak Hooda, Chris Jordan, Siddharth Kaul, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ben Laughlin, Abhimanyu Mithun, Mohammad Nabi, Mohammed Siraj, Mustafizur Rahman, Ashish Nehra, Naman Ojha (wk), Rashid Khan, Vijay Shankar, Barinder Sran, Pravin Tambe, Kane Williamson and Yuvraj Singh.
