PBKS vs MI IPL 2021 match highlights: “We’re going to bowl first. I think we lacked cricket smartness in the last game. When we lost early wickets the middle order should have realized that it wasn’t a 170 wicket. We need to learn from that. The pitch does look sticky and damp and it could get better to bat on later. Just one change: Ravi Bishnoi comes in for Murugan Ashwin,” KL Rahul said after the toss.

“We were going to bat first anyway. While batting first in our games we have understood how to bat as a group. We have made mistakes but we hope we can put everything to rest tonight. When we came here we saw some dew so hopefully, there shouldn’t be any dew. It was just a small niggle on my calf and it looks good now. We are unchanged,” Rohit Sharma said.
