Gujarat Titans won the toss and elected to bowl first, setting the stage for RR to take the crease.

“It is always better to be chasing than batting first. Not an ideal situation where we have to select a playing eleven with main players getting injured.
A couple of changes for us Matthew Wade comes in for Kane Williamson and Abhinav Manohar comes in too. We were in very good positions in the last two matches and now want to finish off games ruthlessly.”

Shubman Gill, GT Skipper

“We also wanted to field first. Journey has been special so far. But as everyone knows, leading a team can’t be done alone.
Grateful for the support from Sanga and team. Even if we’ve won all four games, there have been different challenges.”

Sanju Samson, RR Skipper
