Exclusive Team News

Sunrisers Captain David Warner will not take a risk by destabilizing the winning combination. For Sunrisers, Yuvraj Singh scored a quick fifty in the previous game, and he will be leading the batting department from the front for the hosts. David Warner will once again open the innings with Shikhar Dhawan, while veteran pacer Ashish Nehra will lead the bowling attack of the team. Rashid Khan Arman who picked two wickets in the previous game is another player who is under the spotlight.

The absence of Ravindra Jadeja is the major point of concern for the Gujarat team. He has the knack of picking wickets in any formats of the game, and in his absence will negatively impact the winning chances of the team for sure.

In the previous game, Gujarat Lions included four overseas batsmen in their lineup, and in this game, they may replace one of them with all-rounder James Faulkner for better stability.
