TOSS: India wins toss, opts to bat
Rohit: We are going to have a bat. That’s the challenge you come across as a sportsman, different challenges thrown at you as a player and as a team. Looks like a dry pitch and we have Axar in place of Shardul just because of the conditions.
Dasun Shanaka: We would have batted first as well. They are pretty strong side compared to us but we have to play a good game. We will somehow try to win the game. We are going with the same team.
