IPL2022, LSGvsRCB Toss: KL Rahul wins toss, opts to bowl first


Kolkata: KL Rahul has won the toss against Royal Challengers Bangalore and opted to bowl first in the first Eliminator of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2022. The winner of the game will face Rajasthan Royals in Qualifier 2 and the loser will have to face the exit door. 

“We will bowl first. Simple reason looks like a good wicket, we want to know what we are chasing. Hopefully we will get some swing and take few early wickets. Gowtham and Jason miss out, Krunal and Chameera come in. We were not able to utilize Jason who was batting at no. 8. It is always good if the top three set up the game for your team. Hooda has playing well, and the other guys are looking forward to do well,” said KL Rahul after winning the toss. 

“t’s a used wicket, but it looks a decent batting wicket. This ground is pretty small, so you can catch up towards the end. Siraj is back in the team. Calmness in the dressing room is the most important. We have got some good players in the team, who thrive for this occasion. Looking forward to playing tonight. We celebrated the game (DC v MI) as a fan, but we need to play some good cricket tonight,” said Faf du Plessis after toss.
