TOSS | India skipper Virat Kohli wins the toss, opts to bat against South Africa
Virat Kohli:“Going to bat. Looks like a nice wicket . I know it’s a ground where teams chase well. Even in the IPL, it’s a chasing ground. Heading into the World T 20 though, we need to improve areas as a team. ‘re one of the top chasing teams. Batting first is something we’re also looking to strengthen. Results are always a priority, but we need to get out of our comfort zone also. Come the World Cup, toss is not in your control , you should be able to perform whether batting or bowling first. Have a few plans in mind, will be looking to executing those.Unchanged team. “
Quinton de Kock:“Will be a good wicket anyway, whether we batted or bowled. Just will have to try and compete, be the best players we can be. Last match was up and down for the team. Will try and come out and learn from our mistakes.One change – Hendricks comes in for Nortje, nice to have a leftie. “
