LSG won the toss and opted to bat first, setting the stage for an exciting first innings.

“We’ll bat first. We’ve had high-scoring games here previously, so we aim to set a strong total early.This is a crucial match for both teams. We’ve been in such positions before, so our goal is to stay strong and enjoy the game.
We’re focusing on one thing at a time; starting with a solid performance in the first 6 overs and building from there. Our home record has been decent. Playing with home support always makes a difference, and we would have preferred that.
However, away games have their merits too. We’re familiar with the conditions and how they play out. Right now, our entire focus is on today’s game.”

KL Rahul, LSG Skipper

“Yeah, thank you. My body tells me I’m 31, and with my birthday falling during the IPL, I’m expecting some cake on my face. We would have opted to bat first as well, but batting second here isn’t much of a disadvantage based on past games, so I’m not too disappointed.
It’s hard to predict; this venue has seen high scores, so we’ll just have to see how it unfolds.The challenge is relentless; you have to keep winning right until the end.
Winning today is crucial, though I feel there are still a few games we haven’t quite perfected yet. We’re making a couple of team changes today. Sanvir Singh comes in for Mayank Agarwal, and Viyaskanth replaces Marco Jansen.”
