Live Blog | Live Scorecard

Rohit Sharma: "It's an important game for us. Two losses in three games does not justify. I assumed we played some excellent cricket, but couldn't capitalize on the an important moments. We would've chased first. It's a blessing in hide to bat. But it seems like a excellent wicket to bat. In all three games, we now have were given 170-plus with the bat. So, If we bat to our attainable, we will be able to get to a excellent ranking and that is the idea. Let's submit a excellent ranking and feature one thing for the bowlers. We have were given two changes. Mitchell McClenaghan misses out and Jason Behrendorff makes his debut for us. Mayank Markande isn't well and Rahul Chahar makes his debut too. "

MS Dhoni: "It's 14 games in IPL, the more you win, the simpler it's. We don't look at the result, it's biproduct. We look at doing the basics well. We will bowl first. It's a kind of wickets, if you do not bowl in the proper areas you are going to be punished. There is a few assist for the short bowlers. I believe you have to let the opposition put the runs on board and we will be able to look to chase it down. With so much grass, it does not look like a turner. Still each and every venue possess it's own challenges. So, we want to adapt temporarily and take the sport forward. We have were given Mohit instead of Santner."
