RR vs PBKS: Captain Thoughts

Sanju Samson (Rajasthan Royals Captain): "We would like to bat first. Actually, this is kind of a second home for us. We have spent some time here, and we have some of the guys waiting here for the last two or three days to figure out if we have dew or not. The information is that there is very little, or actually no dew in the later stage of the game. So, I think I would like to bat first here.

Sam Curran (Punjab Kings Captain): "Tonight we play a really good team, and we can spoil a few campaigns now and finish with some pride. We've had a really good squad but some of those games we didn't win the big moments. We are about 2-3 wins away from qualifying. Tonight, we play a good side and I believe in character, I certainly don't want to lose tonight and hopefully I can rub that off on the players."
