For RCB, Dube comes in for Gurkeerat. Shahbaz Ahmed is back in for Saini whose finger webbing has still not fully recovered. Kohli says he was looking to bowl as well but it might not be bad to bat first in a pressure game. Says all the times they’ve made the finals in the past, they’ve been in similar situations like this and the message is simply to win.
Dew is going to play a role and the wicket looks like a belter, says Iyer, and they’ll be thinking of the run rate and what not so they want to chase. Ajinkya Rahane, Axar Patel, and Daniel Sams come in.
Shreyas Iyer won the toss and RCB will bat first.
