The Fab 4 of Indian cricket were honoured by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) officials ahead of the opening match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Meanwhile, former Indian captain and the coach of Delhi Daredevils, Rahul Dravid did not attend the function. It is speculated that Dravid could have been delayed because of the travel time from New Delhi to Hyderabad.

Flights are running late in Delhi because of thunderstorms in the Indian capital and the stadium is two hours away from the Hyderabad airport.
