Gujarat Lions vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, XI Players, May 13, 04:00 PM


Gujarat Lions Probable XI:

Ishan Kishan, Dwayne Smith, Suresh Raina (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Aaron Finch, Ravindra Jadeja, James Faulner, Dhawal Kulkarni, Pradeep Sangwan, Basil Thampi, Ankit Soni.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Probable XI:
David Warner (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Moises Henriques, Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Nabi/Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, Naman Ojha (wk), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Mohammad Siraj, Rashid Khan. 

What to expect: The players, fans and those involved should expect a hot day, with the temperatures hovering in the 40s. The track at the venue is again expected to be full of runs and the side winning the toss will look to chase given the history of the venue. 

Team news:
Gujarat Lions:
When Brendon McCullum was ruled out, it was too late for Lions to bring in a replacement for him. They have continued to play with just three overseas players - despite having Chirag Suri, the fourth overseas player in their rank - and are likely to stick to that. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad: In the last game against Mumbai Indians, they dropped Kane Williamson and went in with Mohammad Nabi. It's unlikely they will chop and change a lot and are likely to stick with the same playing XI. However, if the think-tank does prefer to add more stability to their batting, then Nabi will have to make way for Williamson. 

What they said: 
"We are here to win the game and not worrying about other results. We are concerned with only things which are under our control and I don’t think that thinking anything beyond this is worthy at this moment" - Tom Moody, Sunrisers head coach. 

"We had our moments and we were batting well, but at the same time I can say we weren’t that good in the bowling department. There are a lot of young bowlers in the side and we kept experimenting with everyone, but nothing worked out seriously" - Mohammad Kaif, Lions assistant coach.

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