New Delhi: India captain Rohit Sharma has won the toss and opted to field against Pakistan. Announcing the most awaited decision of the month, Rohit Sharma chose Mohammad Shami as his pacer.
After winning the toss, Rohit said, “We are going to field first. Looks like a good pitch, it’s always nice to bowl with overcast conditions. Think the ball will swing around a bit, and we need to take its advantage. Preparations have been good. We played a couple of practice games in Brisbane. Time to come out and enjoy ourselves now. We were expecting nothing less than this, hopefully we’ll entertain them (the crowd). We have seven batters, three seamers and two spinners.”
