Mumbai Indians won the toss and elected to field against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 62nd match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2012 at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore
Royal Challengers Bangalore are playing the same eleven.
Mumbai Indians have made one change, bringing in RP Singh and leaving out Pragyan Ojha.
Royal Challengers Bangalore captain, Virat Kohli, said “Today is the day we wear our green jersey to support our green initiative.
“I would have bowled first as well since the covers were on for quite some time.
“The grass isn’t binded well enough, but it is only 20 overs a side so it should stay the same through the game.”
Mumbai Indians captain, Harbhajan Singh, said “Last time they played better than us, we have come here with a win and some confidence.
“The wicket is green and damp, it is a good toss to win and hopefully we can bowl well and get some early wickets.”
