Let’s have a look at what both the team captains said at the time of the toss:
Sanju Samson, “We are good are chasing and setting totals, so we were happy to do both. We have really great talent and characters in our team. It is a very positive atmosphere. Sangakkara brings in the experience, he knows what to communicate at what point. He just wanted us to relax. Lewis, Livingstone, Morris, and Mustafizur are our foreigners”.
KL Rahul, “We’ll bowl first. It’s a no-brainer, a fresh wicket with grass on. We don’t know how it will play and I prefer chasing. I was just telling a few people in the dressing room that it just felt like yesterday that we were playing IPL 2020. We have a lot that we’ve learned from last year. We are all professionals and we have tried hard in the heat to prefer ourselves. Pooran, Markram, Rashid, and Allen are our overseas players. Unfortunately, Chris Gayle misses out and Aiden has been in good form coming into our setup from Sri Lanka”.
