Kolkata: Royal Challengers Bangalore today won the toss and elected to bowl first against the Kolkata Knight Riders. After winning the toss RCB skipper said that the wicket is little bit damp and might assist the spinners so they have decided to field first.
He further said that they are looking to play good cricket as KKR are very good on their home ground.
While on the other hand KKR skipper Gambhir said that they are playing with the unchanged side as they have three spinners and they would look to restrict the RCB batsmen.
Chawla, Shakib performed superbly in the last game they played on this very pitch. However the competition would be a good one keeping in mind the brilliance Kohli and AB showed in the last match.
