The playoffs of the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to begin today with four teams competing to lift the championship. The first Qualifier will be played between the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai with the winner of the match entering the final directly. The loser will have to go through an eliminator to be played following the second Qualifier.

The Sunrisers were beaten both times by MS Dhoni’s men in the round robin stage and will be looking to turn their fortunes around in the T20 championship. SRH has managed to win nine out of their 14 matches and topped the points table. They qualified for the playoffs following their win against the Delhi Daredevils (DD) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi.

Warner excited about today’s match

However, SRH lost their last three matches and need to arrest their slump in order to get the better of the Super Kings at the iconic venue. Kane Williamson, their skipper has been an inspirational figure for them this time around having captained the side with authority and is also their top run scorer with 661 runs at a stunning average of 60.09. Moreover, he has eight half-centuries under his belt.

The SRH skipper has to come to the party and bring forth his class in order for SRH to overpower the might of CSK. Meanwhile, David Warner is also excited about the match and he dropped some best wishes for his team. He lost his place in the side following his involvement in the spot-fixing scandal.

However, the tainted cricketer is closely following his franchise’s performances. He took to Twitter and wished the team. He also hailed Williamson in his message. Here is what he wrote

“Good luck to @SunRisers tonight, keep playing well gentlemen. Been simply outstanding and being well lead by The great man himself Kane”

Here is Warner’s tweet
