“It is a good pitch, and we will like to know what to score.” Two changes for LSG. Krunal Pandya is back and replaces K Gowtham. And, big news, Dushmantha Chameera replaces Jason Holder. Rahul says they were not using Holder well at No. 8 so better to get in a bowler who bowls above 140ks.
Faf du Plessis says he was 50-50 with the toss and wasn’t sure what to do because of the used pitch. And they believe Mohammed Siraj is a big-match player so they get him back.
