SRH have won 7 out of 12 they have played so far this season and are sitting at the fourth spot of the points table.

The Titans will be desperate to end the season on a positive note while SRH can secure their spot in the playoffs with a victory, so it will be an absolute cracker at Hyderabad.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

SRH are coming into this game after a dominant victory against LSG. That was a complete performance from Hyderabad and they would like to continue that. Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma's opening pair has been one of the most lethal duos of the tournament and they once again delivered as SRH chased the target of 166 inside ten overs without losing any wickets.

Aiden Markram is unavailable, but Nitish Kumar Reddy hasn't disappointed with his batting. Shahbaz Ahmed and Abdul Samad are playing the role of the finisher and have done the job in some matches.

Heinrich Klaasen has played some match-winning innings this season and would like to replicate that if SRH needs him that way against GT. SRH have been part of many high-scoring games. But, captain Pat Cummins, Bhvneshwar Kumar, and T Natarajan have been very good with the ball in hand.

The pacers have scalped wickets and they are in top form. Bhuvi has got his form back and bowling some extraordinary spells in the last few matches.

Gujarat Titans

Gujarat's previous game washed out due to rain. Sai Sudharsan is in brilliant form and he is likely to open with skipper Shubman Gill once again. This is going to be GT's last game of the season and they are out of the playoffs already. But, they would like to end their season on a positive note and make the qualifications for the others more interesting by registering a victory against Hyderabad.

David Miller, Shahrukh Khan, and Rahul Tewatia will handle the middle order with Matthew Wade on their side. Rashid Khan has always been a trump card for GT. The Afghanistan spin wizard's four overs are always crucial as he can change the course of the game. Although Rashid conceded 38 runs against CSK, he returned with two important wickets. Noor Ahmed has also bowled some critical overs but he isn't consistent.

He didn't have a good game last time but will be desperate to improve. Mohit Sharma finally looked like himself during the clash against Chennai. He scalped three wickets and will try to replicate the same against SRH too. But, it will be a tough pitch to bowl. Umesh Yadav is also expected to feature against Hyderabad and GT will have to bowl well as SRH's batting lineup is too strong.
