Lucknow Super Giants has won the toss and have elected to bat first, a decision that seemed to pay off as the game progressed.

“We will bat. We want to start fresh, looks like a good pitch to bat on. I don’t think dew is going to play a part. It is a new pitch.
You can bowl and bat well to express yourselves, the boundaries are big so the bowlers enjoy playing here. The batters are enjoying batting as well. Arshad Khan comes in for Mayank Yadav.”

“We would have batted as well. Few of our players are injured, so we need to look for the right playing eleven. We have two changes. Mukesh Kumar and Kuldeep Yadav are back.”

“Got injured first game and was difficult to see the team struggling in the middle overs. Credit goes to Patrick to maintain my fitness and get me match-ready. All three were important wickets, it was crucial to get wickets in the middle overs to control the run rate. I liked the first and second wicket, I have played a lot against Nicholas Pooran and the execution for that was right. I was clear with my plans, just the length matters for me as a spinner. Very clear and confident with my skills.”

Kuldeep Yadav, Delhi Capitals
