Captains View

David Warner | SRH Skipper

We will bat first. (Reasons?) Because we haven’t done that yet (laughs). It’s a different surface to what was expected in Delhi. But it’s not going to change much through the course of the game. We are just looking at the attitude in tough situations. We just want to stay relaxed and come out with clear minds. It’s about experience for us, so we have two changes. Abhishek Sharma and Virat (Singh) miss out. Sandeep and Pandey are back.

MS Dhoni | CSK Skipper

We were looking to bowl first. Looks a bit tacky and the boys who practiced yesterday said there was quite a bit of dew. We prefer to chase if there is a chance of dew. Bowling with the wet ball or bowling in conditions where there is not much help is the area we would want to improve. We were slow in the first game but we picked up pace. Lungi and Moeen are back in place of Bravo and Tahir.

Man of the Match

  • Name: Ruturaj Gaikwad
  • Team: Chennai Super Kings
  • Role: Batsman
  • Stats: 75 runs of 44 balls

Means a lot (his highest IPL score). Little bit disappointed couldn’t finish it well. Think it was little bit two paced, little bit low bounce. Scoring big shots was difficult. It was all about how you hit gaps and hit over the fielders. Just planned who is the better bowler on this surface, who is not. One or two bowlers had a bit of an off day, cashed in on them. Just want to keep performing each and every match.
