Punjab Kings won the toss and elected to bat first. Punjab Kings is unchanged while Rajasthan Royals has one change – with Yashasvi Jaiswal coming in for Karun Nair.
Mayank Agarwal: “We’d like to bat first. Looks like a good wicket might get slower as the game progresses. It is important to understand the conditions. It might turn in the second innings. Fantastic from Liam to go out there and do what he did, I am glad. We are playing the same side.”
Sanju Samson: “We are losing quite a few tosses, we’d have batted first as well. We are a balanced side. It’s a different challenge, we are ready to go out there and have some fun. Being a day game, spinners might get some help. One change – Karun Nair misses out, Yashasvi Jaiswal comes in.”
