“New recruits in the side, lots of young talent. New season, new hopes. Don’t think the wicket will change much, but we were also looking to bowl first. As far as this bunch goes, they are very keen, and there is no baggage from the past, so we don’t care about the old records.”
“Could be a little two-paced. Some dry areas, and some grassy areas, but don’t be fooled – in sultry weather like in Jaipur, pitches play better than they are look like. It’s going to be pretty good for batting. The key for RR will be Jofra Archer. He can be extremely effective at the death. He’s got an extra 10ks compared to every other fast bowler and that’ll make things tough at the death for the Kings XI,” said Michael Clarke.
