Losing the toss, Australian captain Pat Cummins said “Good to be back, it’s been a while since I’ve been back here. Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell are not quite ready. Would’ve bowled first as well but don’t really mind. It’s nice and sunny out here. Warner and Marsh will open the batting. Smith, Marnus and Inglis to follow”.
On the other hand, Indian stand-in Captain KL Rahul said “We’ll bowl first. Historically a good chasing ground, that’s about it. There are a few boxes that we need to tick and the boxes that we’ve ticked we need to keep doing it better. One more challenge, the best team in the world so good to play against them. They are a very competitive team so we’ve enjoyed playing against them. It’s always a great challenge”.
