SB 10.18.18
tam vidvan api dasarho
 bhagavan sarva-darsanah
anvamodata tat-sakhyam
 vadham tasya vicintayan

Translation:
Since the Supreme Lord Krsna, who had appeared in the Dasarha dynasty, sees everything, He understood who the demon was. Still, the Lord pretended to accept the demon as a friend, while at the same time seriously considering how to kill him.




SB 10.18.19
tatropahuya gopalan
 krsnah praha vihara-vit
he gopa viharisyamo
 dvandvi-bhuya yatha-yatham

Translation:
Krsna, who knows all sports and games, then called together the cowherd boys and spoke as follows: “Hey cowherd boys! Let’s play now! We’ll divide ourselves into two even teams.”

Purport:
The word yatha-yatham means that Krsna naturally wanted the two teams to be evenly matched so that there would be a good game. In addition to the pleasure of sporting, the purpose of the game was to kill the demon Pralamba.
