Skipper’s at Toss
Dinesh Karthik (KKR Skipper): It’s got a lot of grass cover on it and it’ll be a great batting wicket. One of the things is to keep the right people in the right space.
It’s very important that we get the best out of the players who are doing well. Prasidh comes in for KC Cariappa. Brathwaite comes in for Gurney.
Steve Smith (RR SKipper): We are gonna bowl first. It (pitch) looks nice. Bit of grass coverage. A bit of a welcome change from what we are playing in Jaipur. Some positive signs, you want batters in the top four to score runs.
We got two changes. Big Oshane Thomas makes his IPL debut. He comes in for Ashton Turner. Dhawal Kulkarni is out and Varun Aaron replaces him.

“It is a good pitch. It has a good pace and a good bounce. The outfield is quick. You need a couple of balls to get used to the bounce and pace and then you can bat long,” says Brendon McCullum
