Virat Kohli speaks

I would have done the same. As Rohit Sharma said, it’s a difficult ground to defend and we’re good at chasing. So, we would have bowled first too. Wouldn’t want to look too far ahead. Key is to enjoy as many games as we have left. I think we were taking too much pressure in the initial few games and we kept falling back. The guys enjoyed a lot in the last game and showed desire. We’re playing the same team.

19:38 hrs IST

Rohit Sharma speaks

We’re gonna bowl first. The nature of the ground says that it plays better in the second half. Also it’s something our team is good at.
