KL Rahul from LSG calls right at the toss and will bowl first!

“We opt to bowl first. There is a bit of dew and that will play an impact. The wicket is a bit slow and hopefully, we can put their batters under pressure.
We played well, but we have left the result back in Lucknow. We know how challenging Chennai is, everyone will be cheering for them. We don’t have any changes.”

KL Rahul, LSG Skipper

“I lost seven tosses in a row I think and have to work on that. There will be some dew later on, but you never know how the wicket will surprise you. You just need to go out there and express yourself. Just attack when the ball is in the arc.
Hoping to set the foundation early on. Daryl comes in for Rachin. Pretty good to have three home games. However, it doesn’t matter if you are batting first or bowling first, you need to play good cricket here to win.”

Ruturaj Gaikwad, CSK Skipper
