It’s the Weekend!!! And for cricket fans, it means to back to back IPL clashes. First match to feature today is the Gujarat Lions vs Sunrisers Hyderabad played at Green Park, starting 4:00 PM.
This one is the do-or-die game for the Sunrisers. If they win, a playoff berth is guaranteed, but if they lose and Kings XI win against the SuperGiants, the defending champion will miss out the top 4 finish.
For the Gujarat Lions, this match is a matter of pride and dignity as they go out on the field for their last appearance in the IPL as they won’t be showcasing in the next season.
Currently the Orange Cap and the Purple Cap are both held by Sunrisers’ players. David Warner has scored the most, 535, runs in the tournament. And the Indian Swing Bowler, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar holds the purple cap with 23 wickets.
With the both teams batting line-ups in-form and firing, the match will be high scoring one, with the pitch being not much of a factor in the conditions.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have a better chance of winning the game with all their players in-form but Gujarat Lions will like to spoil the party for their rivals and go out on a winning note.
