Wicketkeepers - Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul (vc)
Both the keepers have been in deadly form with the bat as openers, especially the latter, whose trustworthiness makes him the deputy captain.

All-rounders: Andre Russell (c), Jason Holder and Krunal Pandya
Russell is a no-brainer here for his consistent all-around form, making him the unanimous skipper. On the other hand, Holder has been ruling with his pace, while Krunal has been broadly efficacious with his leg-spins and can be upright with the bat if needed.


Bowlers - Umesh Yadav, Avesh Khan and Varun Chakravarthy
Yadav and Avesh have killed it with their pace in IPL 2022 and would be no different in this tie, while Chakravarthy is mysterious with his leg spins and shall make it tough for the batters again tonight.

Probable XI
Venkatesh Iyer, Baba Indrajith, Shreyas Iyer (c), Nitish Rana, Sam Billings (wk), Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Umesh Yadav, Tim Southee and Varun Chakravarthy.
LSG: Quinton de Kock (wk), KL Rahul (c), Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Ayush Badoni, Marcus Stoinis, Jason Holder, Mohsin Khan, Ravi Bishnoi, Dushmantha Chameera and Avesh Khan.
