KL Rahul: I was a bit confused at the toss. Don’t mind batting first and we need to assess what a good total would be.

Rohit Sharma: We’ll look to bowl first. Just a team plan, nothing specific. It’s a good pitch to bat on, so pretty simple actually. As a team we do understand where we stand at the moment and we also understand that we haven’t played to the best of our potential. We know where we’ve made mistakes and hopefully we can correct it tonight. Because of where we stand at the moment, we have had to make some difficult changes which we didn’t want to do. A couple of changes: Ishan goes out and Tiwary comes in and NCN comes in for Milne.
