Kolkata, Apr 12 : Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer won the toss and sent Kolkata Knight Riders to bat first at the crucial VIVO IPL match at Eden Gardens here on Friday.
Iyer said they will bowl first. " The wicket looks a belter, it's going to be a flat track. We have been chasing well in the last few games, hence positive about that." he added
The Capitals inducted Keemo Paul replacing Sandeep Lamichhane.
KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik said " Last game was a bit of an aberration.
We didn't expect it would play like that. We have got three changes. Lockie Ferguson, Joe Denly and Carlos Brathwaite come in. Narine, Gurney, Lynn miss out."
