KL Rahul | LSG Captain
We’ll bat first. The pitch looks a bit dry. Last few games, it’s been tough chasing. Try and get off to a good start and put a good total on the board. We have to be positive, we’ve done really well in the tournament.
Even after losing the last two games, we are still sitting at 16 points, that speaks a lot about how we have played in the tournament. A couple of bad games is not going to change it. We need to turn up, start fresh, try to win this game, and enjoy it. We’ll focus all of our energy on this game.
We do have quality in that middle-order, everyone’s experienced, they’ve played enough. You trust them to figure a way out, obviously, it’s not been the easiest season this time for the batters in the middle order.
You got to give them the benefit of doubt and we expect them to come back strong and deliver a match-winning performance. We have three changes – Krunal Pandya has a niggle, so he sits out. Chameera and Ayush Badoni miss out. We’ve got in Manan Vohra, Evin Lewis, and K Gowtham.
Shreyas Iyer | KKR Captain
I would have batted as well. If you see the history of their team, they have not been so solid while chasing. Even we have been really good while batting first.
(Message to the team) I’ve just told them that this is going to be our last opportunity for us to express ourselves to the maximum. Let’s do it for the coaches, management and for all the supporters who have been cheering right from the start and show them what kind of ability we’ve got to play at this level.
We’ve got one change. Since Ajinkya Rahane is injured, Abhijeet Tomar comes in for him.

Quinton de Kock | Lucknow Super Giants
I was a little bit cooked (after his innings) but it was a matter of getting some refreshments and get on with it I guess. It was a bit of frustration that came out (on his aggressive century celebrations).
Felt really good to come out and do well. Was trying to keep it in, but when it came out, felt good. To be honest, not really (whether he thought the game would get so close).
Obviously they played really well, assessed conditions well and came hard at us. I thought he (Stoinis) would defend it easily. But when the first three went, I thought the game was done for us. But that catch, turned things for us. As they say, good catches win matches.
