On Thursday (May 3) evening, hosts Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) won the toss and decided to field first against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the thirty-third match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Here is what the captains said:

Dinesh Karthik: We would like to bowl first. We have been chasing decently. It’s important to be aware of your strengths. Nitish Rana is out and Rinku Singh is in.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni: We wanted to bowl first as well. The wicket has been so good that the outfield seems a bit smaller. Otherwise, it has been a good venue. Need to improve on our death bowling, what’s important for us is to bowl according to our field. That’s the only concern for us. Same squad for us.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Karthik(w/c), Rinku Singh, Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Shivam Mavi, Piyush Chawla, Mitchell Johnson, and Kuldeep Yadav
