Rajasthan Royals have won the toss and have opted to bat
Ajinkya Rahane – We will bat first. The wicket looks dry, not sure how it will play, might get slower and slower, will look to put the runs on the board. For me, the team comes first, I respect their decisions, it’s a great challenge and it’s important to play well and win. We have a couple of changes, Ish Sodhi and Krishnappa Gowtham are in, for Smith and Unadkat. It’s all about giving our best.
Shreyas Iyer – It’s an important game for us, we need to have a mindset of playing every game as a knock-out match, we are in a good mood as a team. Our batsmen love to bat on good bouncy wickets, this been a slow wicket – we didn’t expect it, but we can’t blame the wickets for our poor show here. Two changes for us, Keemo and Ishant are in, they replace Suchith and Chris Morris.
