Kohli: "We would have bowled first as well, but the pitch here is very good, doesn't change much. So we are not worried much about the toss. We have brought momentum into the game, but we need to play good cricket today to win. We are unchanged. Yuvi has been playing well since his return, had a recent IPL as well. Rohit playing well too gives the others a bit of cushion."
Mathews: "We will bowl first. Prasanna misses out. We have a total of three changes. Our batting didn't click, hopefully we'll get it right today."
