Now that Indian election fever is finally breaking, we can turn our attention back to what really matters - the 2014 IPL.
With Royal Challengers winning the first match of the day, SRH need to win to keep pace and stay in the hunt for the playoffs.
The toss is due to take place about 20 minutes from now.
VVS Laxman says the team is hoping for a lot from captain Shikhar Dhawan, who hasn't exactly set the tournament on fire so far.
For those who don't know, the great VVS is now on Twitter. He says his friends forced him to join.
@VVSLaxman281 is the man's twitter handle, in case you were wondering.
Darren Sammy will be captaining SRH today.
Looks like SRH want Dhawan to concentrate only on his batting.
Sammy: Shikhar is an important member of the team for us. The management has made a decision and hopefully I can do a good job.
Sunrisers have won the toss and will bat first against KKR. Sammy is captaining SRH in place of Shikhar today
Sammy: We are going to focus on tonight. We have made one chance. Sammy comes in for Henriques.
Gambhir: I would have bowled first, so I got what I wanted.
KKR going with an unchanged team.
KKR are on a three-game winning streak but a loss to SRH would leave the two teams and RCB tied on 10 points in fourth place.
The consensus is it is a good batting wicket in Hyderabad. And just to remind everyone, over 400 runs were scored on this ground in SRH's last match against KXIP.
Shikhar and Aaron Finch are all padded up and waiting in the dugout for the match to start.
The openers are no longer sitting down. They are now out in the middle.
And we are moments away from starting this game.
Morne Morkel to get things going. The bounce he gets means Yusuf Pathan is standing 29 yards behind the stumps at slip.
Dhawan crunches the last ball of the over through point for the game's first boundary.
After 1 over, SRH is 8/0.
OUT! Morkel takes a diving catch at third man to send back Finch. Don't see fast bowlers doing that often.
After 1.3 overs, SRH is 14/1. That was the early wicket KKR wanted it is the form man Finch that had go go.
AJ Finch c Morkel b UT Yadav 8 (8b 1x4 0x6)
Umesh Yadav working up a lively pace here too. Last delivery clocked in at 146 kph.
After 2 overs, SRH is 14/1.
Ojha clips Morkel fine and the fielder at fine leg gives up the chase without really trying, conceding four runs. Morkel is not happy.
Morkel keeps the damage down to 7 runs. After 3, SRH is 21/1.
FOUR! Umesh gives Dhawan some width and the ball is slammed to the point boundary.
Morkel gets a third over.
Struggling with his line, is Morkel. Gets called for a wide down legside for the third or fourth time in this spell.
FOUR! Dhawan sends a wide full delivery screaming past the third man fielder.
A poor over from Morkel - 12 from it. SRH 40 for 1 after 5 overs.
It is Narine to bowl the last over of the PowerPlay.
OUT! Dhawan tries the slog-sweep but can only top edge it to Gambhir at square leg. SRH 41/2 after 5.4 overs.
It is amazing how batsmen still haven't figured out Narine.
Dhawan c Gambhir b Narine 19 (14b 4x4 0x6) SR: 135.71
Spin from both ends now - Shakib into the attack.
Missed stumping! Ojha charges Shakib but completely misses his hoick. The ball goes between bat and pad but Uthappa didn't have his gloves in the right place and the chance is missed.
SIX! Warner goes boom over deep midwicket. Simple when you know how.
A single off the next ball brings up SRH's 50 from 41 balls.
Ryan ten Doeschate has replaced Narine.
SIX! Ojha finds his bowling much more to his liking. Sends him soaring over long-on.
After 8 overs, SRH is 58/2.
