Right! We are done with all the pre-match formalities as the action is about to begin. The umpires walk out into the middle.

Tushar Deshpande will begin with the ball for Delhi. Off we go..
Kolkata (Playing XI) - Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine (IN PLACE OF TOM BANTON), Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (C), Dinesh Karthik (WK), Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson, Kamlesh Nagarkoti (IN PLACE OF KULDEEP YADAV), Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy.

Informs Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Sunil Narine come in for Kuldeep Yadav and Tom Banton. Admits he too wanted to bowl, the wickets have played consistently and he has enjoyed playing cricket here.
Shreyas Iyer, the skipper of Delhi, says there is grass on the wicket and he expects moisture early on which should help the seamers. Adds they are not here to survive and are here to make an impact, they will have the same approach in this game as they have had throughout the tournament. Mentions every player has stepped up when needed and is taking responsibility, they have been training hard and it is showing. Informs they have two changes as Ajinkya Rahane and Anrich Nortje come in for Prithvi Shaw and Daniel Sams.
