Mumbai: Lucknow Super Giants-led Kl Rahul has won the toss against Delhi Capitals in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2022. LSG has already won two out of three games while DC is lagging behind with one win.
“We’ll bowl first. Can’t really think of a reason why but it’s a fresh wicket. We’d want to bowl well upfront and restrict them. One change – Manish misses out and Gowtham comes in. Still early in the competition. Chat is about forgetting what happened, whether we win or lose, and putting our 100 percent going forward. Another opportunity to go out there and perform well as a team,” said KL Rahul after wining the toss.
“We’d have bowled first as well, because we haven’t played here before. Three changes for us – Warner comes in for Seifert, Nortje in for Khaleel and Sarfaraz replaces Mandeep. He (Warner) is a big addition, such an experienced player and will add value for us,” said Rishabh Pant.
“I’m striking it well and it’s just a matter of one innings and the process is going well from the nets itself. Since 2018 he (Ricky Ponting) has been coaching the Delhi Capitals and I think he is like a boss of the team and he really sets up the targets among the players and he has got 15-20 years experience in international cricket and he just shares his experience on how he used to play and he used to captain the IPL games and gives us the feedback, I’m enjoying playing under him,” said Prithvi Shaw before the toss.
