After the toss, Rohit Sharma announced the squad and it would definitely make the fans a little less happy as Jasprit Bumrah is missing out once again.
“We are gonna bowl first. It was a good wicket when we played here last time. Bit of green covering but it’s gonna be a good batting track. Very critical to continue to do what you’re doing and keep that momentum in this format. Very healthy atmosphere in the group and we also want to make sure to tick all the boxes and so far we have been doing good and we just want to continue to do that,” said Rohit.
