“We will bowl first. Don’t think the conditions will change a lot, we’ll have to play with a positive mindset. The fielding wasn’t great, we are looking to improve on that.” David Warner called at toss
“Looks patchy, so not a bad toss to lose. Runs on the baord in Chennai is proving important, if we do get wickets in the middle overs, it will become difficult. Was a good game, but we werre not at our best – to finbish eight down wasn’t ideal, but as a bowling unit, it was great to be back in the gme. We will need to be professional, play ourselves in and then get a good total. The boundary percentages could be crucial. We will need to stay ahead of the game – Padikkal is back, he replaces Patidar. I will continue to open, Shahbaz will bat at three number” Virat Kohli said
