The Sunrisers have endured a disappointing start in the seventh season of the IPL having lost both their opening two fixtures so far.

After losing the first game to Rajasthan Royals, the Hyderabad based outfit were undone by the high flying Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) as they lost by a staggering 72 runs.

Shikhar Dhawan elected to field after winning the toss, but his choice backfired as Sanjay Bangar's side posted a huge total of 193 runs in 20 overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was their most economical bowler conceding just 19 runs in four overs, taking three wickets in the process.

SRH failed to post a significant challenge to chase down KXIP's total and were all out for 121 runs in 19.2 overs. They remain at the bottom of the points table and Dhawan will be hoping that his side can finally embark on winning ways.

Meanwhile, the Daredevils too were handed their second defeat in this year's IPL as they lost to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 93 runs.

MS Dhoni's team left a target of 178 runs for DD to chase in 20 overs. Jaydev Unadkat was their only bowler to clinch more than one wicket in the innings with a three-wicket haul.

However, Gary Kirsten's side failed to counter CSK's bowling threat and collapsed in 15.4 overs managing to make just 84 runs.

The Delhi based outfit have managed to register one victory in the tournament so far which was against Kolkata Knight Riders on 19 April. They will be desperately hoping that Kevin Pietersen is fit enough to feature and inspire them towards the play-off spots.
