KXIP were boosted by a 14-ball fifty in their first match against DD to hand his side a comfortable victory. The hosts have played 6 matches against KXIP in Chinnaswamy Stadium but they managed to win only 2 of them.

This will mark the third straight season the controversial linebacker has been suspended at the start of the year.

Burfict's failed test occurred in late December. According to Jay Morrison of My Dayton Daily News, "He will lose $896,470 in game checks, plus another $562,500 in 46-man roster incentives that were worked into the three-year, $32.5 million contract he signed in September".

Burfict missed the start of the 2016 season for multiple violations of the NFL's player safety rules, including a hit that left Pittsburgh Steelers Antonio Brown dealing with a concussion.
