At the time of toss, Faf du Plessis said: “We are gonna bowl. The pitch looks similar but it feels a little bit tacky. A lot of positives, the first 3-4 overs were challenging, the way we batted through. From bowling perspective, you are expected not to get everything perfect. Same XI. Nice to start the tournament like that, hopefully I can do that again.”
Kolkata captain Shreyas Iyer said: “I would have loved to bowl as well. Dew plays a massive role. The bowlers did an amazing job, made it easy for the batsmen. Now it’s going to be a test for us to come in and bat and see to it that we get a good total. It’s just a work of execution. Tim Southee is coming in for Shubham Mavi. That’s the only change we are making.”

Pitch report: “The wicket looks a lot drier than the first game, not as much live grass on the surface. I still feel it’s going to be a good wicket. The boundary size isn’t that big, straight is pretty small. If Kolkata can get a good base upfront and Andre Russell can come in, he is definitely going to clear and hit some big sixes here. I’ll definitely bowl first. It does get wet here, quite tricky to control,” reckons Morne Morkel.
