Captains View 

Shreyas Iyer | DC skipper: Would’ve also looked to bowl considering the dew. The wicket looks amazing. Happy to bat as well. Have talked about it.

Have got slow starts in the last few games. Important we don’t lose wickets in pp. Have batsmen who can come in the latter half and cover-up. Ashwin in for Axar. Harshal in for Ishant. They have left-handers. Harshal gives batting down the order.

Dinesh Karthik | KKR skipper: Going to bowl first. Maybe a little bit to do with the dew. Both games so far have gone with the bowling team. We’re on the right path. Instead of Kuldeep, we have Rahul Tripathi. Wanted to add depth to our batting. This is like every Indian ground we play on. Nothing new.
