David Warner played a brilliant knock as Sunrisers Hyderabad booked their spot in the IPl 2016 final after beating Gujarat Lions by 4 wickets

The Lions, led by Suresh Raina, have been impressive in their first ever IPL appearance, finishing on top of the table en route to the Play-offs.

They had one foot in the summit clash when they had Royal Challengers Bangalore on the mat in first Qualifier but AB de Villiers pulled the rug from under their feet with his sensational batting.

But the job is not going to be easy for the Lions since they are up against a team, which has beaten them twice in the league stage. Both the times, they had failed to defend their totals against the Sunrisers.

Gujarat Lions XI: Finch, McCullum, Raina, Karthik, Smith, Jadeja, Bravo, Dwivedi, Praveen, Kulkarni, Kaushik.

Sunrisers Hyderabad XI: Warner, Dhawan, Henriques, Yuvraj, Hooda, Cutting, Ojha, Bhuvi, Bipul, Sran, Boult.
