Virat Kohli speaks at toss
“Going to have a bowl. The pitch does look a little bit dry. They've left enough grass in the game to sustain. Later in the second half the pitch settles down a little bit. It's been hard work adjusting to all kinds of surfaces, and the teams that have done so have qualified. Some experiments come off, some don't. We come into this game feeling balanced about our lineup. Same team.”

"Same pitch which was used yesterday in the game between CSK and PBKS. It is a little drier. These cracks are quite open and may play a role. Zero complaints about the hardness. Seamers have taken 83 wickets, and a quarter of those have been off slower balls. It's an even contest between bat and ball here"
— Matthew Hayden and Anjum Chopra on Star Sports
Oct 08, 2021 06:37 PM IST
RCB's Devdutt Padikkal speaks
"It's another important game leading into the playoffs, always important to win matches before the playoff stage and take the momentum into it. It's been a bit up and down, I haven't been as consistent as I'd like to be, but I still want to contribute. Looking to improve withe very game I play. It was a great experience, playing for the country is a great dream and to be able to do it at such an young age is a great achievement for me, hopefully, I'll continue to do that. Last season was disappointing to out of the tournament at that stage (Eliminator) and it wouldn't be any easier this time around as well. We have worked hard and have played some good cricket to reach this stage, hopefully we'll continue with the momentum. The wickets here have definitely slowed down a bit towards the latter stages of the season, it's something we expected, the same happened last year as well. It is something we have got used to it. It's always a pleasure to play amongst some legends of the game, the experience they share and the knowledge gained is unmatchable. You can't ask for anything more as a 21-year old."
