Rajasthan elect to bat first at Eden

Kolkata, May 24 (IANS) Rajasthan Royals skipper Rahul Dravid won the toss and elected to bat first in the Indian Premier League second qualifier against Mumbai Indians at the Eden Gardens here Friday.

While Rajasthan play an unchanged side from the last game, Mumbai’s sole change is all-rounder Rishi Dhawan replacing pacer Munaf Patel.

The start of the game was delayed by an hour due to a wet outfield following a brief spell of rain hours before the match.
