RCB opts to bowl

Toss: RCB opts to bowl.

Virat Kohli: We are going to bowl first. We have seen the wicket eases out in the second half. We had a bit of a jolt at the start of this leg. Against Chennai, we could have made a game out of it. We were 15-20 short. Every team wants to qualify with a few games to spare. Having qualified, we would like to back ourselves to deliver when under pressure. Same side for us.

Kane Williamson: Exciting opportunity for us. I think as an environment, we would try to evolve. There is still some focus. There is a lot of enthusiasm, thanks to the youth in the team. We are going with the same side from the last match.
