DC captain, Rishabh Pant, after winning the toss, expressed his preference to chase the target. Pant highlighted the potential impact of dew in the later innings, stating, “We would like to chase the score. The thought of dew is also in mind because it can have an impact in the second innings.”

He also acknowledged the team’s need to improve in bowling during the death overs. Pant confirmed one change in the team due to David Warner’s injury, with Sumit Kumar being included in his place.

On the opposing side, GT captain, Shubman Gill, shared his thoughts on the wicket and playing conditions. He mentioned, “We would have also liked to bowl first because the wicket looks good. There was no dew last night so hopefully the same happens today too.”

The stage is set for an exhilarating encounter between the two teams, with both sides aiming to secure a crucial victory in the IPL.
