Rohit Sharma, India captain: We were also looking to bowl, not sure how the pitch will play, we will now have to get the runs on the board. It's important from the team's perspective to find answers, we'll try and put our best foot forward. I understand where we stand as a team and will be looking to give chances to some of the other guys.
We need to make them feel confident, that means we'll have to give them plenty of games. We are building towards the WC, the guys need to be tested in certain aspects of the game.
There are 3 changes for us - Ravi Bishnoi, Axar Patel and Sanju Samson are in. They replace Hardik Pandya, Ravi Ashwin and Shreyas Iyer.
Nicholas Pooran, WI captain: “We are going to bowl first. The ground has been covered and there should be some moisture, we'll look for early wickets. Take the game as deep as possible and then win the key moments. We are playing some good cricket so far, the boys are looking forward to today's game.”
