Rahul says

We will bat first. I don’t have an answer to that (good record batting first.) We want to start fresh, looks like a good wicket. I don’t think dew is going to play a part. It (new pitch) has made a huge difference. You can bowl well, bat well, express yourselves, the boundaries are big and the bowlers enjoy playing here. The batters are enjoying batting as well.
