KKR started off the campaign by beating Sunrisers Hyderabad by six wickets. Chasing a difficult target of 182 runs, KKR were 118/4 in the 16th over and required a massive effort from someone in the ranks to take the team home. Andre Russell took the task in hand and blasted a 19-ball 49, which included 4 fours and 4 sixes, to get KKR past the target. He was ably supported by Nitish Rana, who hit 68 off 47 balls and Shubman Gill, who played a 10-ball 18 cameo.
Kings XI Punjab beat Rajasthan Royals by 14 runs in their opening clashing of the season. It was a controversial match after Punjab captain R Ashwin mankaded Jos Buttler. After Buttler's wicket, Rajasthan could not find ground and kept on losing wickets at regular interval to lose the match.
