Hello readers, welcome back to the blog. As you know today is Eliminator Match between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. RCB won the toss and opt to bat first.
We are going to bat first, looks like a great wicket, nice and hard. It gets tougher to bat here in Sharjah as the game progresses. No changes. A youngster steps up and wins you a game against a top side like Delhi. Very happy for KS. This is what this tournament is all about. Meetings have been pretty short and sharp. We have the ability to win games, nothing changes this being an Eliminator.Virat Kohli (Captain RCB)
We would have loved to bowl first anyways. The toss doesn’t bother us. We are feeling confident within the group, we are starting to come good as a team.Eoin Morgan (Captain KKR)
