Rajasthan Royals have won the toss and have opted to bat
Ajinkya Rahane: We’re looking to bat first. I don;t know how this wicket will behave but I am sure that the wicket won’t change much in the 40 overs. We’re going in with the same combination; we don’t believe in a lot of changes. I think staying in the present is all what this format is all about. We need to stick to our strengths and back ourselves.
Kane Williamson: We would’vs liked to bat first as well. Shakib and Hooda miss out from the last match. Myself and Shabaz come in. It looks like a good surface and it is important that we adapt with the ball first up. The injury is coming along nicely. Every side enjoys playing at their homeground in front of a wonderful crowd.
