TOSS – We are all set for the spin of coin. Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli is out in the middle along with Rajasthan captain, Sanju Samson. Kohli has the coin in hand. Up it goes! Sanju calls Tails but it comes down as Heads. BANGALORE OPT TO BOWL!
PITCH REPORT – Simon Doull is the pitch master for the day. He says that it is the same surface that was used in game number 4 and 2. Games where a lot of runs were scored. Tells it is a belter of a pitch. Doull says it is nice and hard and the ball will come through nicely. Tells the pitches on either side of this one were the ones where the ball turned.
Hello and welcome to game number 16 of the league as two sides in the opposite ends of the table go against each other as 2nd placed Bangalore takes on 7th placed Rajasthan. Kohli’s Bangalore have been phenomenal so far winning all three of their games. Bangalore will be eager to continue their winning run and go back to the top of the table. Rajasthan, on the other hand, have been inconsistent so far. They come into this game on the back of a thumping loss to Chennai. It will be interesting to see how their young skipper, Sanju Samson leads his side after that loss. The 2008 champions will want to put that loss behind and get their second win of the season. Can Bangalore start their mini Mumbai leg with a win or will Rajasthan’s experience on this venue so far help them? An exciting game awaits us. Stay tuned for toss and further updates.
