Captains View 

Virat Kohli | RCB skipper: It’s a dry heat, but it’s not so bad. We are playing with the same XI. We wanted to bat first as it’s a day game, better to get into the game in the first six overs of the match.

Getting a strong squad together, it’s good to see the youngsters doing the job for us, that’s what we have focused on. Dube contributing, Chahal’s always a banker and AB does what he is good at doing.

Steve Smith | RR skipper: We’ll bat first. It’s a day game, pretty warm out here, so we want to bat first and set a target. We got one change, Lomror comes in for Ankit (Rajpoot). It’s a long tournament, you are going to win games, lose games. Hopefully, we’ll put on a good show today. Ben (Stokes) is a quality player, adds to our squad once he arrives.
