Talking about the toss result, Rajasthan captain Samson won the toss and invited Chennai in to bat. It is worth mentioning that this is the third consecutive time when Samson has won the toss and chose to field.
“Bowling first works in these conditions so that’s what we’ll do. We trust our team, we trust our team-mates. In this format, it’s easy to get out but we have a deep batting, so that helps,” Samson told Star Sports at the toss.
Being asked to bat first, Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni laid emphasis on assessing the conditions especially while batting in the first innings. The same has it in it to have an impact as far as CSK’s projected first innings score is concerned.
“It’s part of the game. I think he [Ruturaj Gaikwad] just needs to assess and he’s doing okay. I feel last year would have taught him a lot about phases where you’re not scoring a lot of runs when you want to. I think he’s well equipped to deal with that.
“The surface looks a bit tacky to start, so I think it’ll be important to assess and we’ll have to consider dew. But if there’s no dew we don’t really need to look for a 200-type total,” Dhoni told Star Sports at the toss.
Fans must note that both the teams are unchanged for this match.
