During the toss, Rohit Sharma said, ‘We would like to bowl first. There is no specific reason behind this. The pitch is good and not much change will be seen here. We will get to learn a lot from these three T20 matches because we have not played much T20 cricket in recent times before the World Cup. There is also IPL but we want to achieve many things in international matches.

I have talked to Rahul Bhai about which combination we should take on the field. We will play under that and winning is most important for our team. Sanju Samson, Avesh Khan, Yashasvi and Kuldeep Yadav are not playing in this match.

Along with this, an update has also come out that Yashasvi is not playing in the first T20 match due to injury. He suffered an injury before the first match and has not yet fully recovered from it.
