RCB opts to bowl

Toss: RCB opts to bowl.

Virat Kohli: Going to bowl first. It feels like the pitch remained good in the last game. If you get off a decent start, you can get runs consistently. I think as a batting unit, we're doing a good job and want to continue that. Want to provide our bowlers with the conditions - it's a new pitch. We asked the guys to be brave in crunch moments, and they showed that in the last game. I feel like I'm hitting the ball the best I have in a while. Just a change: Garton makes his IPL debut in place of Jamieson.

Sanju Samson: Wicket is nice. A lot of people have batted first and won the game at this venue. As a team, we were a bit down. Had a long chat yesterday. Revisited the purpose of playing the game. Lots of supporters back home. Karthik Tyagi comes in place of Jayden Unadkat.
