The KKR skipper revealed that Andre Russell and Sunil Narine are not fit for the game and among the two changes for the game, Tom Banton and Prasidh Krishna comes in for Russell and Shivam Mavi respectively.
"The wicket looks good. The games we have won so far, the majority of them we have batted first. It seems to have worked for us throughout the tournament so far. The guys at the top against Sunrisers did a great job. Couple of changes. Banton and Prasidh come in for of Mavi and Russell. Dre picked up a niggle in the last game, Sunil is still not 100%," he said after winning the toss.
Meanwhile, RCB skipper Virat Kohli said he would have batted first on this wicket too and has made one change in the line up as Shahbaz Khan is dropped for pacer Mohammed Siraj as he expects the pitch help out fast bowlers.
"We would have batted first. Looks like a good pitch, should be a good chase as long as we bowl well. We bowled them out cheaply in Sharjah. It's all about how we execute our plans. Siraj comes back. Shahbaz misses out," he said.
