Team News

Gujarat Lions:

  • Players Unavailable for rest of the series – Jason Roy, Andrew Tye and Brendon McCullum (latter two ruled out due to injury).
  • Even though they lost the last match, they are expected to go with same XI as it looks a more settled line-up.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • There is no clarity over Ashish Nehra’s fitness so expect him to remain on the sidelines if not fully fit.
  • Also, Mustafizur Rahman has left for the Ireland and New Zealand Tri-series so he won’t be available for the rest of the series.
  • For the fourth foreign player option, SRH has three options to choose from – Kane Williamson, Mohammad Nabi and Ben Cutting. Expect them to choose one after analyzing the playing condition in Kanpur.
  • Rest of the squad is expected to remain the same unless there is an injury.
