Quotes:

Virat Kohli: We would have batted first today. We haven't chased after the first game in the tournament, so it's a good challenge for us. We haven't really focused on the opposition in this tournament, that's why we have been consistent. I haven't seen what's been happening outside. But I do believe the Pakistani fans will be supporting us, which is a rare thing.

Eoin Morgan: We are going to bat first. Tactical move to bring in Plunkett in place of Moeen. There could be a bit more pace and bounce.
