Kolkata (Unchanged Playing XI) - Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Sunil Narine, Eoin Morgan (C), Dinesh Karthik (WK), Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy.
Eoin Morgan, the Kolkata skipper, starts by saying that he has struggled for form. Adds it was nice to get some runs in the last game. Wants to continue his form now. Tells that they are unchanged.
Delhi (Playing XI) - Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant (WK/C), Steven Smith, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav (In for Amit Mishra), Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Avesh Khan.
Rishabh Pant, the Delhi skipper, says that there might be some dew and hence the decision to bowl first. Feels the wicket for now looks dry and they want to make use of the conditions. Informs that Mishra has a shoulder injury and he misses out. Lalit Yadav replces him.
TOSS - Both the skippers are out in the middle. Up goes the coin and it lands in Pant's favor. Delhi will BOWL FIRST!
