"It will be slightly on the slower side. There could be dew around. Feels good [to lead for the 200th time]. The crowd is fantastic. The new stadium is like playing in Switzerland. We have seen cricket change. Feels good to have survived for so long and it's a format we have to keep evolving. Important to get rid of mistakes. A few changes - Santner and Pretorius make way for Moeen and Theekshana." RR skipper Sanju Samson said they will try to keep up the winning momentum.

"We would have liked to bowl first too. We have started well but we need to continue the momentum. We are playing at Chepauk after a long time. We have experience and the youngsters to do that. It has always been a pleasure to come to Chepauk and play here. Boult misses out due to a small niggle and we have a couple of changes," he said. CSK (Playing XI): Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ajinkya Rahane, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni(w/c), Sisanda Magala, Maheesh Theekshana, Tushar Deshpande, Akash Singh.
