Gujarat Lions and Sunrisers Hyderabad face-off in what is a virtual semi-final, as a win will guarantee either of them a place in the final. The new franchisee in town, the Lions made some impressive signings in the auction and it has paid off. They have brought in experienced Twenty20 professionals in Brendon McCullum, Aaron Finch, Dwayne Smith, Ravindra Jadeja and skipper Suresh Raina, all of whom have guided the team well.
Smith in particular has been in impressive form in the last few games, and since Gujarat are dependent more on their batsman, it will be imperative for them to fire.
The best bowling attack of the competition, Sunrisers Hyderabad have surprised everyone with their performance this season. They play as a team and though heavily dependent on skipper David Warner, the other players have shown that you do not need big names to be successful.
The onus will be on the batsman to post a decent score, if they do then Bhuvneshwar Kumar and company have the arsenal to win them games.
