Toss Results

DC wins toss and opts to bowl first

Morgan: We had a good practice, we need to focus. We haven’t played our best cricket, hopefully we do that today. Nagarkoti comes in, Narine comes in for Kuldeep and Banton. Looks a good wicket, we love playing here.

Iyer: We will bowl first, there’s bit of grass on the wicket. It will help our seamers at the start. We are here to express ourselves, so our mindset will be the same. We will have the same approach. Every player has been Man of the match on some occasion. Rahane comes in for Prithvi, Nortje comes in for Sam.

KKR face Russell-Narine dilemma

The absence of Sunil Narine and Andre Russell was felt big time in KKR’s match against RCB. While Russell was out with an injured knee, Narine complained of a niggle and was kept out of the XI. You have to believe that if Narine is even 80 percent fit, KKR will play him in today’s match. Although, no official news has come out yet regarding the fitness of the two player

We are exactly one hour away from the toss
