IPL-10: Hyderabad beat Gujarat to qualify for play-offs (Second Lead)

SRH will go through if they beat GL in their last league-stage fixture

The last match played at this venue was a high scoring affair.

The result turns Sunday's clash between Rising Pune Supergiant and the Kings XI Punjab into a knockout match. This was just his third hit in the IPL, after making one and 15no earlier this season, and he admirably kept pace with Warner in a 44-ball 63no laced with nine fours.

Kishan was the top scorer among the Gujarat batsmen with 61 runs off 40 balls with five boundaries and four sixes. Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid mesmerised the Lions, claiming three for 19 to restrict the visitors to 135. Gujarat Lions (GL) will try their best as they are playing their last game in IPL and will surely look to go out with a bang.

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. From 120 for 1, suddenly Lions slumped to 120 for 4 and Sunrisers took full use of the opportunity that they got.

David Warner: The Sunrisers captain would be looking to lead from the front with the bat and steer his team to victory with another dominating performance.

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: After a slow start, Shikhar Dhawan has finally found his groove heading into the business end of the tournament.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar: The go-to-man with the ball for Sunrisers at any stage of the innings.

Suresh Raina: This is the first time in 10 seasons of the IPL that Suresh Raina won't feature in the play-offs.

Mohammed Siraj bowled a memorable spell of 4/32 in his 4 overs. Deepak Hooda replaces him in the match.

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

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Mohammad Nabi, Deepak Hooda, Moises Henriques, Naman Ojha (w-k), Vijay Shanker, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Siraj, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul.

Speaking after the match, Warner gave credit for the win to his bowlers, including Siraj, for the the way they brought their side back after a rollicking stand between the Lions openers.

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).
