Rajasthan Royals won the toss and decided to Field

“We’ve decided to bowl first on this pitch. Our decision factors in both the opposition and the current conditions. We’re on a fresh wicket today, which should assist our seamers early on and we anticipate some dew later on.
It’s encouraging to see our team members stepping up and taking charge, especially in closing games. While we have several potential match-winners, not every day will be theirs. We’re sticking with the same squad for today’s match, though Sandeep Sharma won’t be available.”

Sanju Samson, RR Skipper

“We were on the fence about our decision, but this wicket looks promising and should play consistently throughout the game.To add some firepower to our lineup, we’re making a change by adding an extra batsman. Our batting hasn’t quite fired yet, so we’re hoping this tweak will spark something. We know we haven’t played up to our potential yet, but it’s all about making minor adjustments. If we can bring our best game, we’ll be formidable opponents. Today presents another chance for us to turn things around.
Finding the right roles for our players is crucial. We want them to feel confident about their positions and believe they’re batting where they’re most effective. So far, our batting hasn’t clicked, but we’re working on it.”

Faf du Plessis, RCB Skipper
