Adds that they are in with a chance mathematically but they will take one game at a time and they need to execute their plans and they are looking to try out players who have not played many games. States that Mitchell Santner and Monu Kumar come in.
Virat Kohli, the Bangalore skipper, says that they will bat first as the pitch might get slower and slower as the game progresses. Adds that they expected the pitch to slow down as the tournament progressed. Goes onto say that even if there is dew, they need to allow the ball to come onto the bat.

Chennai, on the other hand, have had a terrible season. They have a very minute chance of qualifying and that is a big task as they need to win all their remaining games and expect other results to go their way. Considering their performance, the chances of them qualifying looks highly improbable. But they would look to play for pride and spoil the party for the other teams. They have a good chance of trying out their bench strength and they will hope that they put on a better show.
