Follow IPL T20 live score for Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Gujarat Lions

Thanks for joining Sportskeeda's live coverage of the first-double header, do switch tabs to follow our live coverage of the second game between Mumbai Indians and the Kolkata Knight Riders! Good-bye!
With that, Gujarat Lions are still looking out for their first elusive win while Sunrisers Hyderabad have moved up to the top of the table with two wins from two matches. A four-day gap could do well for GL, as they will look to stitch their perfect squad for the game. 


Rashid Khan is adjudged as the man of the match for his spectacular figures of 4-0-19-3. With the three wickets, he is also the current purple cap holder.

He says "
It is a wonderful and a positive message for Afghanistan. They love their players out there. I have been getting a lot of support from the people of Hyderabad as well. The coach asked me where I was comfortable bowling but I told them that I would bowl everywhere in whichever the situation the team wanted me to. They bowled me in the powerplay today and I knew that the batsmen weren't reading me well. I had it in mind to bowl googlies and bowl leg-breaks towards the end. I thank all fans for their support and hope to wear the purple cap throughout the tournament"


David Warner claims that it was a fantastic effort by the bowlers. He says "It is one of surfaces that is dry and the ball comes on nicely. Fantastic effort from Rash and well backed up by Bhuvi and Nehra. Credit to the curators, he is always fantastic with these surfaces. Rashid is a superstar in the making, he adds great dynamic to our tea. With Fizz out as well he helps us add balance to our side. I give my bowlers the freedonm to go out there and execute their plans. We always plan to minimize the wickets lost and score quickly to boost up the net run-rate. When asked about the contribution about Henriques, he says "Moises has added a great strike force to our team. He's done it for us in the past and he's done it in the BBL as well. In the end, he thanks the crowd for supporting SRH throughout.


Suresh Raina, the losing captain claims that they did not have enough runs on the board. He adds "They bowled really well, especially the Afghanistan spinner. We haven't bowled well in the powerplay as well. We were going well before he (Rashid Khan) came in and got three wickets. 135 was never enough on that wicket. We have to rise our bowling and if we don't do that, we don't deserve to be in the top four. We have not played him much and that was the difference. He also mentioned that Jadeja might come back for the next game and his experience will be crucial for their side. 


So in the end, Sunrisers Hyderabad have comprehensively beaten Gujarat Lions by 9 wickets and this match could be a major reality check for the Gujarat Lions. A match that featured two antogonists for GL, Rashid Khan with the ball and David Warner with the bat.
