Toss Moment

Royal Challengers Bengaluru won the toss and opted to field first, setting the stage for SRH to bat.

“We’re set for a chase tonight, which has been typical this season. The pitch has been a bit slower. Honestly, we haven’t played our best cricket yet. It often feels like we’re not reaching our full potential. To shake things up, we’re making some changes. Maxwell and Siraj are sitting out, with Ferguson stepping in, hoping these adjustments can turn things around for us.”

Faf du Plessis, RCB Skipper

“The way we have approached the games has resulted in some great victories. It’s T20 cricket; you can’t win every match. We are going into this game with the same team as the last one. Here at the Chinnaswamy, even a score of 240 can seem just par.”
