Debut side SunRisers Hyderabad take on Pune Warriors in both sides’ first venture in the 2013 IPL.
It is an exciting season for SunRisers Hyderabad as they play their first ever IPL match against Pune Warriors, after replacing the now defunct Deccan Chargers for the 2013 season.
SunRisers have recruited Sri Lankan Kumar Sangakkara to lead their side and also boast the talents of young Indian batsman Shikwar Dhawan and Proteas paceman Dale Steyn.
Pune Warriors are looking to improve on their dismal IPL performace last year when they finished rock bottom and have appointed Sri Lanka ODI skipper Angelo Mathews as their new captain.
The match between the sides starts at 2.30pm GMT.
