IPL 2021: RR wins toss, opts to bowl first against DC
Abu Dhabi: Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson won the toss in their Indian Premier League encounter against Delhi Capitals and decided to bowl first in the first double header in the second half of IPL 14 on Saturday.
Speaking at the toss, Samson said: "We will bowl first. It's a day game, it becomes easier to bat second. We have all settled down and moved on to this game, it was a complete team effort by everyone. Evin Lewis and Chris Morris miss out; Tabraiz Shamsi and David Miller are in. They have a balanced side, we are looking forward to an exciting game."
Rishabh Pant said: "We were looking to bowl first as well, but it doesn't matter. There will be a bit on the wicket in the day game. One change for us, Lalit Yadav replaces Marcus Stoinis. It's good to be nearing a record, but we're not looking at individual performances, not thinking too much about qualifying."
Playing XI: Rajasthan Royals: Sanju Samson(w/c), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Liam Livingstone, David Miller, Mahipal Lomror, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Kartik Tyagi, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman, Tabraiz Shamsi
