India skipper Rohit said: “Looks like we are going to bowl first here. I don’t want to comment on the pitch as it has played differently every time. We have to prepare ourselves with one eye on Australia. We have to keep ticking the boxes. They are going to challenge us. We are playing with five batters, one all-rounder, and two spinners, Ravi Bishnoi is making his debut.”

On the other hand, West Indies skipper Kieron Pollard said: ” The toss is 50-50. We try to stay in the present. Jason Holder got hit during practice yesterday and hence he misses out.”
