RR elects to bowl

Toss: RR elects to bowl.

Samson: We would like to field first on this wicket. The past matches and the experience we have, it's easier to chase. It has always been the same for the past two-three years. You need to show the character, commitment towards the franchise. I want everyone to put in some great performances. We have made four changes.

Dhoni: We would have liked to bowl first because the wicket here will stay the same. We are one side that doesn't make many changes. Sam comes in for Bravo, and Asif comes in for Deepak. We are playing back-to-back games, so it's essential to keep the players fresh. It's better to rest them. The weather will keep getting better from now, and it will be the perfect weather during the World Cup.
