Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Gujarat Lions IPL 2017 Match Prediction: Who will win the match?

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Gujarat Lions IPL 2017 Match Prediction: Who will win the match?

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Hyderabad will back Yuvraj to deliver the goods

The Sunrisers Hyderabad unit comes into the match with a very strong performance in their inaugural IPL 2017 match versus the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Hyderabad will back Yuvraj Singh to go out into the middle and play an innings similar to the first match – fearless and just like how we know Yuvraj at his best.

The SRH look absolutely balanced on paper

The bowling unit for Hyderabad looks equally strong as their batting – with Afghanistani young spin-wizard in Rashid Khan, Nehra & Bhuvaneshwar from India supported by Moises Henriques who can put a stoppage on the run-rate in the middle order along with Hooda, both of whom are explosive batsmen – the SRH has a very balanced side.

The captain needs to step up

Warner hasn’t had great last 6 months and his tour to India wasn’t very impressive in terms of scoring to show, he’ll be keen to change things around and come big as the captain of the side.

IPL 2017 1st Innings Score Predictor IF Sunrisers Hyderabad Bats First: 

The Sunrisers Hyderabad will be backing Yuvraj to play his big shots, along with Henriques to give the middle order some strength. However, it’ll really depend on Warner’s form that will dictate how big a total the Sunrisers can get. We predict in excess of 160+.

Gujarat Lions

The bowling is a major concern

The Lions are coming into the match with an absolute beating in their first match of the tournament against KKR. Putting up 180+ with the bat, the Lions bowling was ordinary and needs the serious overhaul. The KKR won the match by 10 wickets and with relative ease, with no likelihood of Lions grabbing a wicket anytime during their innings.

Replacing Bravo and Jadeja is proving a nightmare

The absence of Jadeja and Bravo looked visibly affecting the Lions in their opening match. While Jadeja and Bravo are quality bowlers, they also offer plenty with the bat and there’s another aspect to their game – quality fielding. Replacing them won’t come easy for Lions.

Perhaps Lions need an overseas bowler

Lions need to consider playing an overseas bowler instead of 4 overseas batsmen. Andrew Tye and James Faulkner from Australia are quality t20 bowlers and one of them will probably get a game against RCB.

With the firepower of McCullum, Finch, and Raina – the Lions would be gutted they didn’t get more runs against KKR. This time though they’ll probably not repeat the same mistake and will be looking to make the most of the opportunities in Hyderabad. 170+ is what they should get with such explosive batsmen in their side.

IPL 2017 Match Winner Predictor: 

Sunrisers Hyderabad will go into the match as favorites purely because Gujarat Lions have exposed their poor bowling unit in the last match while Hyderabad looks to be a much more balanced side. The home advantage will also play in Hyderabad’s favor.

Will it be McCullum’s day?

Products from

    Brendon McCullum, the ex-New Zealand skipper looked in fine touch against KKR and is an absolutely dangerous prospect for Sunrisers hopes of winning against Lions, getting his wicket will be a key to winning. McCullum though should get above 30+ in the match.
