SRH will be confident ahead of the match playing in home conditions. Sunrisers Hyderabad have registered their first victory of the season in their first match against last year s runners up Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Led by skipper David Warner, SRH first put up a massive total of 207 for 4 and then went on to restrict a batting-heavy RCB at 172 with 2 balls to spare, snatching a 35-run victory. Both Moises Henriques and Yuvraj Singh scored half-centuries and later Ashish Nehra and Bhuvneshwar Kumar led the bowling attack, picking up 2 wickets each. Another sensational effort came from IPL debutant Rashid Khan, who picked up 2 wickets.

GL lost their first match due to poor bowling. Gujarat Lions started off well, putting up a competitive score of 183 for 4 in their 20 overs. However, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Gautam Gambhir (76*) and fellow opener Chris Lynn (93*) together got their team home, chasing down the target with 5.1 overs still remaining.
