IPL 2017, SRH Vs GL Match Prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will take on the Gujarat Lions (GL) in the exciting first match of the Super Sunday (9 April) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. The game will start at 4 PM in the afternoon. Both the team have the heavy loaded batting lineup which could destroy the opponent’s bowling attack. Sunrisers will try to make it two in two as they have won the first game against the last year’s runner-up Royal Challengers Bangalore. On the other hand, Gujarat Lions would love to get on the points tally as they were beaten by Kolkata in their first game.
Sunrisers will start the match as the favorite as they are the defending champions. They have beaten the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their first game comprehensively. They would have to take a lot of confidence from that match as they clicked as the batting and bowling unit both. The main thing about the Sunrisers will be the form of their star players Shikhar Dhawan and Yuvraj Singh. Both of these players played a wonderful knock in the last match to help their side take two points from the game.
The bowling unit also performed brilliantly. In this match again the batting lineup will depend on the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, captain David Warner, Yuvraj Singh, Ben Cutting. These guys will have the responsibility to lead the side to victory. In the bowling department, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar will lead the attack.
There are many other good bowlers like young Rashid Khan from Afganistan, Ben Cutting, Henriques. Their bowling attack will become more dangerous as their star bowler Mushfiqur Rahim will return to the side after serving the national side.
On the other hand, Gujrat Lions will be devastated with the loss against Kolkata. It is not the loss that would have hurt him but the way they were beaten in the game would have hurt them a lot. Their bowling performance was way below par in the last game. If they continue to bowl the sam way then Sunrisers batsman will again punish them. Their batting was very heavy in the last match but was not able to put up a huge total on the board.
In this match also the batting lineup will depend on the likes of Bredon MaCullum, Suresh Raina, Dwyane Smith and Aron Finch. Suresh Raina will have to decide which are the four foreign players that will play this match. This will be the crucial decision as this could decide the game. They need to find some quality bowler that could produce a good bowling performance in the match. The bowling unit will be led by Praveen Kumar, Dhawal Kulkarni.
