Zaheer after winning the toss stated: “We gonna bowl first. These kind of situations bring the best of you. The players are looking for challenges and there is nothing I need to tell them. We belive in our strengths and strategies. Obviously they have got a lot of left-handers. So, we have made a few changes. In: Jayant, Negi, Brathwaite. Morris misses out due to a niggle, that’s a forced change.”
Warner on the other hand looked confident and comfortable and stated: “We are not thinking too much about anything. Just come out here and start fresh from ball one. We have got 2 changes in our side. Nehra’s injured, so Sran will replace him. Cutting misses out and Morgan takes his place at number 6.”
