Lucknow Super Giants won the toss and elected to bat first.

“KL Rahul is playing as an impact player, we are easing him in as he is returning from an injury so he would definitely be here and we will see how it goes. We would look to put up a good total and defend it. We have lots of changes.”

Nicholas Pooran, LSG Skipper

“We would have bowled first anyway because of the dew we saw last night and would look to take advantage of the dew. Bowlers need to get their lines tight and also for batters to not lose back-to-back wickets in clusters. We are going in unchanged.”

Shikhar Dhawan, PBKS Skipper
