Winning the toss, MI captain Hardik Pandya said “We will bowl first. It looks like a similar track, but it might get better to bat on under lights. There was a bit of dew as well, so chasing could be a better option. The mood before and after the win was different, we’ll need to start well, put the pressure and then take the game forward.

We got the highest score without anyone getting to 50, that gives you plenty of confidence. Bowling well in the powerplay was crucial. One change – Shreyas Gopal comes in place of PC(Piyush Chawla)”.

During the toss RCB Captain Faf du Plessis said “We’ve tried to change things, so we’ve given chances to some of our players, some new players and it’s up to them to take the opportunity. It’s important to give players a decent run, but we’ve found ourselves in a stage where we haven’t done well, so it’s time to make changes.

One thing that’s important is to be consistent and that’s where we’ve been disappointing. But we know we can turn this around. We would have fielded as well, chasing at this ground is the better option, but the pitch looks good. We’ve got three changes – Jacks debuts and he’ll come in at 3, Mahipal and Vyshak are back”.
