TOSS UPDATE: Sunrisers Hyderabad chooses to field.

As we await the toss, here's the preview for tonight's contest: KKR eyes redemption against high-flying SRH

Meanwhile, KKR, which has two points from as many games, will be aiming for a strong outing at home. While its batting has looked good - Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine doing the damage at the top - the death bowling has been a concern. However, skipper Dinesh Karthik isn't perturbed, not yet anyway.

Having beaten Mumbai Indians by a narrow one-wicket margin, Sunrisers Hyderabad will be eyeing yet another impressive performance against the Knight Riders. Hyderabad's bowling - its strong suit this season - came good once in the last match with the pace trio of Billy Stanlake, Siddarth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma complementing the spin duo of Rashid Khan and Shakib-Al-Hasan. In the batting department, opener Shikhar Dhawan continued his run-glut while the middle order - though dodgy when tested - came through thanks to a balsy innings  from Deepak Hooda.
