Today is the second day of double header tournament and there is a already a big difference in the turnaround time from one game to another for different teams. While Gujarat Lions have just over 40 hours between the end of their home game against Kolkata Knight Riders and the start of their away fixture against Sunrisers Hyderabad. After the 10-wicket defeat to Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday, when five of six bowlers used went at more than 10 an over, James Faulkner or Andrew Tye is likely to make the Gujarat Lions XI. Dwayne Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja are still unavailable due to injuries. Whereas Sunrisers, who thumped Royal Challengers Bangalore in the season opener, will miss the services of left-arm quick Mustafizur Rahman for the second match in a row.

Openers

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan

David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan have very settled batting line up with being in supreme form for Gujarat Lions since the last edition of the tournament. Skipper David Warner took special delight in the fact that there was a strong performance from batsmen 3,4,5 and 6 – something that was often a grey area in their title-winning season last year.

 

Gujarat Lions: Brendon McCullum and Jason Roy

Jason Roy new captain of Gujarat Lions team and Brendon McCullum is robust batsman from New-Zealand. The rakish opener with the company of an equally explosive Brendon McCullum, can turn the heat on the opposition in the first few overs.
