Steve Smith | RR skipper
We are batting. Day game, better to bat first. Same team for us. We have got a good mix with Stokes back, we did a lot of things right in the last game. The wickets are slowing up, one reason for batting first.
Virat Kohli | RCB skipper
This pitch looks a lot better, the surface looks a lot better than what we had in Sharjah. We would have batted first as well. A couple of changes for us – Mann is back for us, he replaces Siraj. Dube misses out, Shahbaz Ahmed gets his first game today.
That helps us get the balance back. We have learned from our losses, that shows the character in the team. It’s been a hectic schedule this week, it’s all about executing our plans
