Follow IPL T20 live score for Gujarat Lions vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

That's it from Sportskeeda's coverage of the first encounter. However, don't go anywhere as the second of today's double header between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians will start shortly.
Mohammad Siraj is the Man of the Match for his brilliant spell of 4-0-32-4
David Warner, the winning captain says: "It would have been a shame to miss out on the playoffs. We tried to communicate after the first wicket. When we lost couple of wickets we realized the wicket was slowing up. Credit to Siraj for the way he bowled. India have got some brilliant pace bowling names.. from Bumrahs to Bhuvis to Ishants, the list just goes on. I think it is all about batting around to each other. To have the luxury to have guys come and rotate strike in the middle overs. We are very happy. With the way this wicket was, we knew this was going to be tough as the ball got older. Obviously we are not worrying about the next few games. We will take one game at a time. Thanks to all the people who came out to watch the last couple of games".
Raina, the losing captain says: "It's been that way for a couple of games, lack of experienced bowlers cost us. Credit to SRH, they had a game plan and went along with it. It was a disappointing year this time around, but there was some positives - the bowling of Basil Thampi was excellent, Ishan Kishan batted very well. Disappointing season, we need to forget this year - we didn't play well as an unit. Thanks to the crowd in Kanpur and Rajkot, the support here was outstanding and the facilities were great as well. Thankful to the administrators and the groundsmen for their work. We had a fine platform set today, but we lost our way completely after the first 10 overs".
Time for the presentation ceremony
Guarat Lions seemed to have the match in their pocket during the first ten overs of their batting innings. Dwayne Smith and Ishan Kishan went hell for leather to pile up the runs for the Gujarat Lions. They completely lost the momentum when the score was at nelson 111 and lost wickets way too frequently to keep any sort of momentum.

Chasing 158 wasn't quite a smooth ride for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. The lost Shikhar Dhawan and Moises Henriques to Praveen Kumar in a single single over. Vijay Shankar joined David Warner in the crease and since then they hardly looked back. They blended caution with aggression to help Sunrisers Hyderabad win the contest and book a place in the play-offs.

The Gujarat bowlers tried with all their heart and soul, but all their strategies went in vain. Ankit Soni had an off day as Warner and Shankar got on top of him with some scorching shots.

David Warner again displayed why he is deemed to be one of the batsmen doing the rounds. In the process, he became the first batsman in this IPL to register 600 runs. 
 
18.1 FOUR! Ankit Soni to David Warner. Leg spinner half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Gujarat Lions by eight wickets 
One run required for the Sunrisers to canter home by demolishing their opposition. The defending champions are officially all set to enter the play-offs after the Mumbai Indians
