Warner led the Hyderabad-based franchise to their only IPL title in the year 2016.

It will be five time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) versus Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the season opener. SRH will face Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their first match of the tournament on April 11 in Chennai.
