Faf du Plessis has won the toss, and Royal Challengers Bangalore are fielding first against Punjab Kings in IPL 2022.
“We’ll have a bowl,” said Faf du Plessis, who reckons the toss doesn’t make much difference with the wickets getting better in the tournament. “We played some good all-round cricket in the last few games, so hopefully, everyone can play their role perfectly today against Punjab,” he added.
Mayank Agarwal reckons it’s not a bad toss to lose. Harpreet replaces Sandeep Sharma. “We want to put runs on the board and pressure RCB,” he said.
