Hogg: Dhoni has to stand up and be a leader

Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to chase against Rising Pune Supergiant at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. Kohli said the surface was harder than the one used for the game against Mumbai Indians on Friday. He announced two changes: Shane Watson and Adam Milne replaced Chris Gayle and Tymal Mills. This was Milne’s first T20 in a year.

Rising Pune also made two changes with seam-bowling allrounder Dan Christian and left-arm seamer Jaydev Unadkat coming in for tearaway quick Lockie Ferguson and left-arm spinner Ankit Sharma. Before today, both RCB and Rising Pune had only one win from four games this season.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: 1 Virat Kohli (capt), 2 Mandeep Singh, 3 AB de Villiers, 4 Kedar Jadhav, 5 Shane Watson, 6 Stuart Binny, 7 Pawan Negi, 8 S Aravind, 9 Adam Milne, 10 Samuel Badree, 11 Yuzvendra Chahal.
