Karthik: We would’ve bowled first as well. Looks a good wicket and it will remain same. We have made no changes. It’s been a good start and it’s important we stay consistent.
Ashwin: We are going to bowl first. This is sort of a fortess for KKR and we have got one change. Mohit Sharma goes out and Ankit Rajpoot comes in.
