Toss time at Eden Gardens! Gautam Gambhir doesn’t think the wicket’s going to change much throughout the match. He’s hoping Chris Lynn will recover soon, but will go with Colin de Grandhomme for today. Glenn Maxwell thinks his side will be nice and positive and isn’t too worried about batting first. He says it’s up to the individual to bat at their pace. He’s hoping for another great contest against KKR and is hoping to be on the right side.
