Gujarat Lions skipper Suresh Raina won the toss and opted to field first in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Kolkata Knight Riders at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens on Sunday.

Raina said it’s always good to chase in Kolkata, adding that his side had batted and bowled well so far and believed they could return to winning ways.

Raina’s Kolkata counterpart Gautam Gambhir said he wouldn’t mind batting first either, as his side had defended 164 in the last game, adding that the Eden wicket looked like a good one and would have something for everyone.
