New Delhi: New franchise Gujarat Lions will host Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 15th match of the Indian Premier League's ninth edition on Thursday.
After winning their first three games, Suresh Raina-led Gujarat will enter the game as favourites.
Gujarat's opener Aaron Finch has been in supreme form as he scored three half-centuries thus far in the tournament.
However, it's still not confirmed whether he is fit enough for today's tie after hurting his hamstring during the last-ball thriller against Mumbai Indians.
If the opener remained unfit, then the onus would be on Brandon McCullum, Raina and Dinesh Karthik to take more responsibilities on their shoulders.
On the other hand, Sunrisers are struggling with injuries of premier players like Yuvraj Singh and Kane Williamson. And if they want to stop the winning streak of Gujarat they need to find ways to complement David Warner, who has been in super nick with the willow.
Here is everything you need to know about this crucial game.
Gujarat Lions: Aaron Finch, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina (capt), Dinesh Karthik, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, James Faulkner, Praveen Kumar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Shadab Jakati, Pravin Tambe
