Only once a side has won both the eliminator and the second qualifier games in the IPL. Chennai Super Kings has done it 2012, but went down to Kolkata Knight Riders in the final.

It will be interesting contest as Gujarat being best chaser as they won 8 matches while chasing out 10 and SRH are best at defending.
Expect for few hiccups Debutants Gujarat Lions performance in the entire tournament is quite consistent. They have not depended on one or two individuals to reach play offs, all their five batsmen are having 300+ runs in the tournament. Finch and McCullum are the devastating opening pair in this IPL edition, they can tear down any bowling attackand Gujarat Lions will be hoping that this pair will give good start once again. Suresh Raina is enjoying is Modest Success with the bat as he scored 398 runs in 14 matches but he is more successful as a captain. Dwayne Smith and Dinesh Kartik also been in good touch with bat. Gujarat Lions bowling looks strong with Dhawal Kulkarni, Dwayne Bravo who have been leading wicket takers, but also with decent economy rate for Gujarat and their other bowlers are good enough to support the team. Jakati is the only concern to the captain as SRH is having three left handed batsmen and his performance in the last match brought him under the spot light.
On the other hand SRH is quite opposite to GI, they have heavily dependent on their openers ,who did most of the scoring. Except those two none of them have shown an impact on the team performance though Yuvraj have given two match winning performances against Kings IX Punjab and in the eliminator match against Kolkata Knight Riders by scoring quick 40 runs. Ben Cutting and Henrique’s both are labelled as all-rounders but failed to impress with bat, but they did good with ball. Mustafizur Rahman is having best economy of 7.98 in death overs (16-20) till this juncture .Bhuvaneshwar Kumar is the purple cap holder of this edition of IPL, he was so consistent in taking wicket and excellent in the death overs. This bowling pair is doing wonders for sunrisers Hyderabad.
SRH have won the both league matches against Gujarat Lions, SRH is confident that they can repeat it. Unlike Bengaluru, FerozShah Kotla is slow track that is one of the concern for Gujarat Lions. It is slightly difficult to predict the Winner, But SRH is having better chances of winning than Gujarat Lions. And winning toss is very important as the pitch slows down in the second innings.
Prediction: Sun Risers Hyderabad
