Virat Kohli | RCB skipper
We will bat first. It’s pretty dry, rough. It’s interesting when the weather was hot the pitches weren’t playing well. The temperatures have dropped now but it’s slowing down. Moeen Ali replaces Isuru Udana as a spinner all-rounder, just one change. This green gesture is special for RCB, have quite a few good memories in this jersey.
MS Dhoni | CSK skipper
We would have loved to bat first as well, same reason, it’s a used wicket. Mathematically we still have a chance, but you have to think about how we have done in this season. 4-5 games prior we just took one game at a time and not worry about the points table.
If we win it will take care of itself. We are looking at faces who haven’t got chances. Santner, Monu come in for Josh and Shardul.

Man of the Match
Ruturaj Gaikwad | CSK
It feels good, and to win the game for the team and stay not-out till the end more importantly feels better than the personal milestone. It was tough for me, quarantining for a lot more days compared to the other guys. Everyone was with me – my friends, family.
I was practicing well and I knew one good knock was just around the corner. Unfortunately just got out in three matches, but the management supported me including Mahi Bhai. The wicket was slow. I was proactive out there, calculating which bowler to target and whom to not, and it worked out well for me.
