The team winning the toss might opt to bowl first. Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium is a good scoring ground and hence, chasing can be a good option to go for. Moreover, the lowest total ever defended at the stadium in 290. This means that it is tough to defend totals at this stadium. Hence, chasing will be a better option for both teams.
