Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and put Gujarat Lions in to bat in their Indian Premier League match here today.
Young pacer Mohammed Siraj and Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan were the lynchpin for Hyderabad as they produced some excellent bowling to contain the unsafe Hyderabad batting line-up.
David Warner: The Sunrisers captain would be looking to lead from the front with the bat and steer his team to victory with another dominating performance.
Praveen would then nick Moises Henriques off as well, leaving SRH, a little light in batting experience, with Yuvraj Singh injured, in little-worryland. However, dismissing Dwayne Smith, Finch and Raina also play the very important role at the SRH and their effort can make the Saturday game to win.
Together David Warner and Shankar forged a partnership of 133 which took their side home.
The two shut the door on the Gujarat bowlers after Praveen Kumar struck twice in the 3rd over of the innings to peg Hyderabad back.
And thanks to that, a win, and a place in the IPL 2017 playoffs, was the order of the day for the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Giant Sea Creature On Beach Sparks Mystery
Weighing two tonnes and measuring nearly 7m in length, locals speculated the creature was some sort of undiscovered dugong. The Jakarta Globe reports that it was found by 37-year-old Asrul Tuanakota, who initially thought it was a stranded boat.
The left-right duo started cautiously, dealing mostly in singles and hitting the occasional boundaries to take the visitors to 82/2 midway into the innings.
Kishan was severe on anything that was even remotely short, and there were, puzzlingly, plenty of those.
Gujarat Lions could give some of untried players like Tejas Baroka, Pratham Singh and Shelley Shaurya a chance in their final game of the tournament but they would also be keen to end with a win. Kishan hit Siddarth Kaul for a six in the seventh over and deposited Rashid Khan into the stands in the ninth over to bring up his maiden IPL half-century. It was the start of a baffling collapse with some atrocious shot selection from the likes of Suresh Raina and Dinesh Karthik.
A couple of overs after that, Siraj would pick up two wickets off his last two deliveries, with both Faulkner (8, 10b, 1x4) and Pradeep Sangwan (0, 1b) hearing the death rattle.
The Lions will make way next season when Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals are readmitted to the tournament following two-year suspensions.
Ravindra Jadeja (20 not out) provided some token resistance and remained unbeaten at the crease, but saw potential partners come and go with barely a pause.
For SRH, Mohammad Nabi applied the brakes initially and returned as the most-economical bowler, while the rewards were reaped by Mohammed Siraj (4/32), Rashid Khan (3/34) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2/25).
