The form of Aaron Finch, Usman Khawaja and David Warner is set to create a splitting headache for Australia's selectors.

He was ably supported by young Shubman Gill, who smacked two big sixes in the final over to wrap up the chase with two balls to spare as the Sunrisers leaked 54 in the last 2.4 overs.

Rashid and Nabi who are part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad will appear in the opening match of the team against Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday afternoon.

Kolkata keeper Dinesh Karthik put down a leg-side chance when Warner was on 68 but the Australian otherwise dictated terms until Robin Uthappa plucked an astonishing catch.

Putting behind the embarrassing ball tampering scandal, that kept him out past year, Warner smashed three sixes and nine boundaries in his 53-ball knock.

Though England global Bairstow has played far more cricket in recent weeks, it was Warner who displayed greater fluency for the Sunrisers, moving to his 50 by jumping off the ground to cut Russell for six.

While Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead Sunrisers pace department, Afghanistan's Rashid Khan will be in charge of the spin attack.

Israeli spacecraft falls short in attempt to reach moon
The mission has cost about US$100m ($149 million) and has paved the way for future low-priced lunar exploration. Khan, a philanthropist and chairman of SpaceIL, put up $40 million of the project´s $100 million budget.

Earlier, inserted in to bat, Sunrisers rode on David Warner's 85 to reach 181 for three. KKR needed 33 runs of 18 deliveries and the hard hitting Windies all-rounder first clobbered 18 runs in the 17 over bowled by Kaul. The BCCI had then imposed its own sanctions and barred Warner along with Steve Smith from playing in the league a year ago. The opener started hitting all over the park and literally punished all the bowlers of KKR.

Warner also broke Gautam Gambhir's record of most fifties in IPL.

KKR have roped in Carlos Brathwaite to go alongside Andre Russell, Sunil Narine as they would look to reinforce their batting firepower with Chris Lynn.

"We just couldn't finish well in the last three overs".

KKR vs SRH: Where will this IPL match be played? But it is Kane Williamson who will be the biggest threat this year as well, after scoring 735 runs in 17 matches last year. The second match of the league, KKR vs SRH is one of the much awaited one of the day.

While the opening game remained a one-sided affair, we have a significant competitive game to look forward to later today.

What if Vijay Shankar came into bowl the last over?
