Defending Champions, Sunrisers have the last chance to seal play-offs berth on their own with a victory over the Lions, who remain an unpredictable yet dangerous outfit.
Going into the match, Sunrisers are the favourites as they seemed to have the most balanced side in the tournament with Warner and Bhuvneswar Kumar currently grabbing the orange and purple caps respectively.
The Lions have a power-packed batting line-up with skipper Suresh Raina delivering the goods with 440 runs so far in the tournament. However, it is the bowling which Raina would be wary of as they have failed to take wickets and put the brakes on their oppositions this season.
Here's how the play-offs scenario stands as of now:-
A victory for Gujarat Lions would send Rising Pune Supergiant and Kolkata Knight Riders into the play-offs, while Kings XI Punjab would have to win their last match to progress, else Sunrisers Hyderabad will go through.
