9:20 PM IST

MI needs 166 to win

Three more wickets fall in the final couple of overs, as MI bounced back to restrict RCB to 165/6. With the track looking good to bat, it should be a good chase from MI.

7:47 PM IST

Padikkal falls for duck

RCB is off to a shaky start, losing Padikkal for an unfortunate duck to pacer Bumrah in the second over. Nevertheless, it should refrain from pressing the panic button yet.

MI elects to field

Toss: MI elects to field

Rohit Sharma: We are going to bowl first. We have tried everything in the two games we played, and I thought a score in front of us to have a crack would be ideal. Important to focus on the game at hand and keep ticking those tiny boxes. Pandya is very passionate about the game and passionate about his comeback. From a team's perspective, it's a significant boost for us. Just one change. Hardik is back, and Saurabh Tiwary is out.

Virat Kohli: I would have bowled first as well. I don't think the track will change much. We had a team chat together, and we haven't been outplayed and made some mistakes ourselves. When the crunch moment arrives, you have to back yourself, and that's been the chat to play expressive cricket. It's about executing them with courage. They are one of the strongest sides in the IPL and are challenging to play against and want to match the intensity and belief. We will have to be at the top of our game tonight. Saini, Hasaranga and Tim David are out. Shahbaz, Dan Christian and Jamieson are in.
