While the entire SRH bowling unit put Hyderabad in control of the match, a lot of credit must go to the attacking mindset of their new skipper Kane Williamson. It will start at 8 pm IST and be an interesting affair to watch out for.
Sunrisers chased down the 126-run target comfortably in just 15.5 overs.
Meanwhile, commenting on Dhawan's knock, Williamson (36 not out), who also played a crucial role in the match, said: "I had the best seat in the house, he (Dhawan) hit it really well". Williamson, meanwhile, was a touch more conservative compared to Dhawan. His recent stats back that up - a strike-rate of 145.58 in the Nidahas Trophy where he was the 3rd highest run scorer, 153.76 in the T20 series against South Africa where he was the top scorer, and 104.19 in the ODI series where he was second top scorer.
SRH cruised to a 9-wicket victory with 25 balls to spare. Ajinkya Rahane dropped a dolly in the slips of Shikhar Dhawan. Total: (for 9 wkts, in 20 overs) 125.
Sanju Samson (49) was the only one who could make an impression with the bat as his team mates flattered to deceive. Siddarth Kaul scalped two wickets for 17 runs.

A motion by board member Barry Stewart to split the phase three projects into four separate motions for the board to vote on died lacking a second.
Royals couldn't build any substantial partnerships and lost wickets at regular intervals. Shakib Al Hasan and Yusuf Pathan can both bowl spin, the former obviously more adept at it than the former. He scored run a ball 13.
Notably, I've chose to ignore Ben Stokes.
Rashid Khan was bought for a whopping $1,4 million United States dollars while teammate Nabi was bought for $157,300 USD.
The home side also has key all-rounders such as Carlos Brathwaite and Shakib Al Hasan. Rajasthan was reduced to 63-3 after Stoke's departure. The squad looks quite strong on paper with big players like Rahane, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, but lacks a popular or star power among them.
Sanju Samson stepped in and tried to steady the innings in the company of his captain Ajinkya Rahane. Bhuvneshwar Kumar leads the charge. Another safe Power Player option.

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals will open their IPL campaigns here on Monday but the focus will invariably be on two big missing stars - David Warner and Steve Smith - on either side. The threat of a wet weather looms in the city, causing concerns among Hyderabad Cricket Association officials.
Royals are coming back in the tournament after serving a two-year suspension after their players were involved in the spot-fixing saga.
Hyderabad will be expecting fireworks from India and England openers Shikhar Dhawan and Alex Hales, drafted in as a replacement to Warner, to deliver the goods at the top.
The Indian Premier League has begun, and the cricket fever has been reaching its peaks amongst cricket enthusiasts.
While the batting of SRH was top class, it won't be wrong to say that it was their bowlers who nearly won the game for them during the first inning itself by taking consistent wickets and restricting the opposition at just 125.
