Sunrisers Hyderabad

Veteran bowler Ashish Nehra may not play in today’s encounter. Nehra has been bowling well and troubling the opposition, but due to a hamstring injury, he has been out of action.

We may not see Yuvraj Singh in play today due to his injury as he had hurt his little finger while trying to catch the ball. Sunrisers Hyderabad will expect him to be fit before the last encounter against Gujarat Lions.

The opening duo of David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan will have to show their magic tonight for their team to get a place in the playoffs. They will have to get the much needed runs and register a win against Lions if they need to qualify.
