Steve Smith: “Looks better than most of the surfaces we’ve seen here. I would have bowled first as well because we don’t know if dew will be a factor but well, have to bat first and bat well. We haven’t played as well as we would have liked here, or anywhere for that matter. Hopefully, we can take confidence from that and move forward.
Shreyas Iyer: “We’re gonna bowl first. Majority of the sides have won chasing here, so we’re going by that. Our side likes chasing these days and that gives confidence for us.
One change – Chris Morris in for Sandeep Lamichhane.”

“It’s a surface that offers some grass and some dryness. From one end, there is a good covering of grass and the seamers should bowl from this end. The other part of the surface is drier and could bring the spinners into play, especially with the big dimensions of the ground also aiding them. Win the toss, bowl and chase it down under lights.” –
