Shreyas Iyer said after losing the toss that if I am happy to bat first. We have changed our batting line-up and the batting is stronger. Our thinking is that we should score big so that we can give time and runs to the bowlers to defend it. In every match, you have to play a different team and have to prepare a different strategy against everyone. We have made five changes in today’s match.
Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma, who came to talk after winning the toss, said that we want to bowl first. Rohit further said that there is no particular reason to bowl first. We just want to improve our young players. Rohit further said that this season has been ups and downs for us. On the way, Rohit Sharma said that we have made a change in our team.

There is no dearth of big names in both the teams. In such a situation, now the thing to be seen is that whose bat runs on the field and who remains flop. Also, these 2 points are going to be very important for the Kolkata team. If Kolkata wins, then it will move upwards in the points table while Mumbai has nothing left to lose this season. Yes, while making this match their name, Rohit and Co. would definitely like to hit a hat-trick of victory. In the batting, there will be Andre Russell on one side and hit man Rohit Sharma on the other side.
