What we have seen over the course of the tournament, it suits us. We like to chase. We have a couple of changes. Tim David and Kumar Kartikeya come in for Brevis and Unadkat. Preparation has been good, most of it has been done before the tournament."
At the toss, RR captain Sanju Samson said, "We are happy to set a target, we have done that 7-8 times already.
