Warriors’ skipper Johan Botha won the toss and chose to bowl first against Royal Challengers Bangalore in openin Champions League Twenty20 match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
“It looks a good wicket, might be a bit better later in the game so we will chase. The guys are really excited so we are thrilled to be here. Three or four guys haven’t been to India so hopefully they will enjoy,” Botha said after winning the toss.
Vettori said he too would have fielded had he won the toss, “I would have fielded as well. There is a bit of dew factor which will make it easier for batting later on.
“We are all very fresh and excited. We have some very good memories from the IPL so hope we can continue.
“I have had a big break so excited about playing cricket again.”
