The toss may be the deciding factor in determining which team will win the third and final Test and the series, said Indian coach John Wright.

Talking to reporters ahead of Tuesday's match, Wright was quoted by Online News as saying that the toss would virtually decide the match, as the wicket would favor the bowlers.

Commenting on the Lahore loss, he said that India's batters had failed to deliver, whereas Pakistan's bowlers led by Umer Gul stuck to the time-tested formula of line, length and bowling in the corridor to grab wickets at regular intervals.

He also confirmed that Yuvraj Singh would probably open the innings with Sehwag, while skipper Ganguly would resume his responsibilities in the middle order.

"The pressure is on Pakistan not on us," he said.
