Here's how groups are stacked up:

Ravichandran Ashwin: "That's how the IPL is. We have played some good cricket over the seven games. WE have been very consistent; chased down totals and defended totals. WE have a couple of forced changes - Viljeon is down with flu, Tye comes in. Mayank comes back in and M Ashwin comes in for Rajpoot."

Virat Kohli: "We are gonna bowl. There is a lot of dew later on and we are a team that likes chasing. I have lost 5 out 6 tosses, so wanted to bowl first. We have no option but to come out and fight every game. Our position in the table is a reflection on how we have played so far. We are playing with three foreigners, Umesh replaces Southee."
