Virat Kohli said that we too would have decided to bowl first but the toss is not in your control. You should be prepared for both. He said that Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur have been included in place of Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami, who are not playing due to injury.
He said that partnership is very important for us. The Indian team has not given Ravichandran Ashwin a chance in this match as well. Although he said that our right-arm bowlers bowl over the wicket, it will be of great help for left-arm bowler Ravindra Jadeja.
