LSG won the toss and opted to field first, a decision that would later prove to be strategic and fruitful.

“We’ve decided to bowl first. The wicket looks good, and dew hasn’t been a big factor, so hopefully, it stays that way for the entire game. We prefer knowing what we’re chasing. There weren’t any major blunders in our previous games, despite the big defeat against KKR.
We’re still pretty relaxed. I believe in maintaining a calm demeanour as a leader, as panicking can spread. Our support staff is excellent, and we’re trying to keep things as relaxed as possible. The pitches have been relaid here, so each match can bring something different. We have one change: Joseph is out, and Matt Henry comes in.”

KL Rahul, LSG Skipper

“We would have bowled first. Batted well in the last game against MI, and defending that total was a big confidence boost for us. We don’t want to get complacent and aim to maintain consistency.
Personally, I’ve had a bit of luck with my batting, despite some unlucky dismissals in the first two matches. It feels good to be back and everyone is confident. Two changes: Mo comes in for Mitchell, and Deepak comes in for Shardul.”

Ruturaj Gaikwad, CSK Skipper
