Dubai [UAE], October 8 (ANI): Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) won the toss and opted to bowl against Delhi Capitals in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 encounter here at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday.
At the time of the toss, RCB skipper Virat Kohli said: "Going to have a bowl. The pitch does look a little bit dry. They've left enough grass in the game to sustain. Later in the second half, the pitch settles down a little bit. It's been hard work adjusting to all kinds of surfaces, and the teams that have done so have qualified. Some experiments come off, some don't. We come into this game feeling balanced about our lineup."
On the other hand, Delhi captain Rishabh Pant said: "Looking to improve each and every day as a batting unit. Right now we're going fine. Same team."
