“We are going to bowl first. The pitch looks similar to the last one, not sure if the dew will come in. We are delighted, we are trying to play aggressive brand of cricket. No changes in the side,” KKR skipper said after winning the toss.
MI captain Rohit Sharma said, “We would have fielded first as well. There was some dew in the first game against RCB, but the ball was turning. Last game we were 20 runs short, so we need to bat well.”
KKR had won their first match against SunRisers Hyderabad while MI has lost their opener to Royal Challangers Bangalore.
