News

Mumbai: Hardik Pandya has chosen to bat first after winning the toss against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 67th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2022. Pandya’s Gujarat Titans have already booked the birth in the play-off, whereas RCB will be seen fighting for its last chance in the tournament. 

“We are going to bat. The kind of situation we are in, we thought we can practice batting first and putting a good score on the board. One change, Lockie comes in place of Alzarri. Looks like a similar wicket to the one we played against Chennai, but I expect this to play better as this is an evening game.,” said Pandya after winning the toss. 

We would have batted too. Looks a bit dry. One change. Sid Kaul comes in for Siraj. We have to win today and Delhi need to lose their game. Games like today brings out characters,” said Plessis after losing the toss.
