    KKR vs RCB Live Score: Here’s what Shreyas Iyer said at the toss

    “Last afternoon game here, we know how the wicket plays, we would have loved to bowl as well. It’s stiflingly hot and we’ll look to make them as tired as possible. We’ve tried to keep things simple, it’s not about how you start, it’s about how you end, just stick to the basics. We are playing the same team. It’s important to assess the conditions, execute our plans, then it’ll go in our favour.”

    KKR vs RCB Live Score: Here’s what Faf du Plessis said at the toss

    “We will chase. This is probably a chasing ground, always has been. I’m a fan of batting first when it’s really hot, but the temperature did drop after an hour or so yesterday, unlike in Mumbai or Chennai where it stays very hot. The batting is so strong that a general score or 60-70 isn’t considered great during the batting PP. We have three changes – Green and Siraj come back, so does Karn Sharma. We know if we do a few things back, the momentum can be back and we do have the firepower.”

    KKR vs RCB Live Score: Pitch Report

    “This is an afternoon game and that changes the dynamics completely. One short boundary at 61m, the other side is at 66m, the straight boundary is 73m long. It’s very hot at 43 degrees and the pitch will suffer because of that, it’s very dry. Most of the pitch looks even and flat, but there’s one big chunk where it’s extremely dry, the grass has been removed. It’s around the spinner’s length and they could exploit the patches. Otherwise, this pitch has plenty of runs on offer. With this heat, the captain winning the toss should opt to bat first,” reckons Graeme Swann and Sanjay Manjrekar, in their pitch report.
