Lucknow Super Giants skipper KL Rahul won the toss and opted to field first in the game against DC. He talked about the young bowling lineup they have and stated that they want to figure out what’s best for the team. 

“We will bowl first. It is because of how our team is placed and what will help our team. We are a young bowling attack and get them into the game early, we have experienced batters and they can take the pressure. It is pretty clear for us, that we have to win both games. In thelast two games we have not been up to the mark and have been blasted out of the game. The bowlers have to be brave, as a bowling unit you might fear using change ups but they have to do just back themselves. Couple of changes.”

Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant on the other hand stated that they would’ve batted first as they want to score as many runs as possible. He also stressed on the importance of fielding. 

“We would have batted first. There are a lot of things going on (regarding qualification) but you can only focus on winning the game. If you had not lost too many wickets we would have won that game, but easier to say that from sitting out. That is a concern throughout the season but as a captain you can ask the players to give their best and they are doing that. We have two changes - myself and Naib come in, Warner misses out.”
