Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) opener Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed for a mere single by Brendon McCullum off an unfortunate run out, against new franchise Gujarat Lions (GL), in the Eliminator of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016 at the Ferozshah Kotla stadium in Delhi on Friday. It was a normal ball on the off side, as Dhawan drove the ball towards covers, while he was quickly scrambling for a single, but McCullum’s quickness and sharp fielding, followed by direct hit did the damage for Dhawan. Currently, SRH are 11 for the loss of two wickets in two overs, with skipper and opener Davis Warner on 10, while Moises Henriques makes his way in.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) edition 9 is nearing its climax as the fight for a final spot intensifies. Gujarat Lions (GL) will battle it out at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Qualifier 2 of the tournament. The Suresh Raina-led Gujarat Lions lost the first qualifier against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) after AB de Villiers took matters into his own hands. Their top spot after the league matches has eventually helped them stay alive in the competition. They might have lost against SRH twice in the league phase and it might give the latter a psychological boost but GL will start afresh. SRH on the other hand, will be counting on their bowlers who were highly accurate against Kolkata Knight Riders. They might have the momentum going into the decider, but it doesn’t take long before the tides turn, especially in T20′s.
