Acknowledging GT’s edge in previous seasons, it’s about looking forward now.Mayank Yadav is navigating his debut season with remarkable professionalism despite injuries. It’s crucial we support him, with experienced hands like Morne Morkel guiding our pace attack. No changes to our team lineup.”

We dominated most of the previous game, though the final overs didn’t pan out as expected—a typical twist of cricket.Injury updates include Wriddhiman Saha out with a neck issue, bringing Sharath BR for his debut, and Spencer replaces Omarzai.Catching errors happen; the key is staying mentally present, ready to move past any mishaps and focus solely on the immediate task.”
