Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the quest to seal their spot in the playoffs of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 will be playing at home against the already eliminated Gujarat Titans (GT) at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad on Thursday, May 16.

SRH, who currently sits 4th on the table would book their tickets for the playoffs with a win tonight and can also potentially finish in the top 2 if they win both of their remaining matches and the result from the RR v KKR game goes their way. So, they will take on GT will all to play for.

On the other hand, the Titans will want to end their season on a high note with some pride on the line. They find themselves 8th on the points table with just 5 wins and a washed out game. In their final game of the season, they will surely go in with a hope to spoil the party for the Sunrisers.

They last faced off in match 12 of the ongoing season and here's how it panned out.
