Toss: Samson won and chose to bat.
Samson: It is a used wicket, we’re playing the second game here, and looks dry. Everyone is very positive and excited to play the IPL final in front of this fabulous crowd. Same team.
Hardik: We would’ve bowled first [massive cheers in the background]. Very overwhelming to see so many people come and support us. We want to treat this game as normal as possible and make the right decisions. The boys are chilled out, credit to the support staff. One change: Lockie Ferguson in for Alzarri Joseph
