Chennai, Apr 11: SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) won the toss and opted to bowl first against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the third match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium here on Sunday evening.
“We're bowling first. This wicket will play a little different, it's a lot drier. There wasn't much dew in the last training session, and so that won't make much of a difference. We know what we can chase to be honest, and we prefer doing that,” said SRH captain David Warner.
“Our foreign players are myself, Rashid Khan, Nabi and Jonny Bairstow,” he added.
On his part, KKR skipper Eoin Morgan said, “We missed out narrowly last year with qualifying so we will try and go one better this time.”
“Our four foreign players are Russell, Shakib, Cummins and myself,” he added.
SunRisers Hyderabad: David Warner (captain), Jonny Bairstow, Wriddhiman Saha (wicketkeeper), Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Abdul Samad, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Sandeep Sharma.
Kolkata Knight Riders: Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (captain), Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper), Andre Russell, Shakib Al Hasan, Pat Cummins, Harbhajan Singh, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy.
