The evening began with RR winning the toss and opting to field first, a decision that set the stage for an exciting first innings.

“We will bowl first. Looks like a decent wicket to bowl, but no guarantees. This season has been a bit different, some extra days in between games, that gives us time to rest and recover. We’re playing the same team”

Sanju Samson, RR Skipper

“The wicket is good, there’s not much dew in Lucknow and the wicket will play well for the entire 40 overs. We’ll need to play some good cricket. It’s nice to get past 200, every team would like to do so, but the dimensions of this ground favours the bowlers a bit more and we’ve enjoyed it. No changes for us.”

KL Rahul, LSG Skipper
