Toss Details: DC won the toss and opt to bat

Captains View 

Shreyas Iyer | DC captain

We had two outings against SRH and I think this is a better outfield to bat against them. Putting on a good total would be a responsibility, and it’s a good surface too. You have to take the positives and do the homework right and I think we have done that well.

Rashid is an amazing bowler who can change the game. We have to be aware of him and play smartly. Praveen Dubey and Hetmyer come in. It’s important to keep things simple, and it’s only a matter of executing our plan today.

David Warner | SRH captain

We would have bowled first, so happy with the toss. You can see a few indentations on the pitch we’re standing on, so the one we’re playing on should assist us too and hopefully, we can take some early wickets in the powerplay.

We are supposed to win close games, and that was a kick in the backside to perform and we have performed well since then. Everyone knows their roles in the team. It’s a new wicket, a new game, different kinds of pressure.

We have no changes, Wriddhiman Saha has a hamstring tear, so we’re playing the same team as the last game.

Man of the match 

Marcus Stoinis | DC

Have done it in the BBL for a couple of seasons (opening the batting) so it was nice to get an opportunity. Never know what it’s going to be like early. There was swing early on. So had a bit of a look at it before having a crack.

Have played quite a bit of IPL, but this is my first final. It’s been hard with quarantine but a bit of silverware is good motivation. MI are a very good team. Have played consistently. But they’re due an off game. Our best cricket should be good enough to win.

Was a really nice wicket. My thought process was to change my grips and see what I was getting out of the wicket and change my tactics with wide yorkers and slower balls.
