West Indies skipper, Jason Holder, says it looks a good wicket and they want to make use of it. Further adds the weather can’t be controlled and they want to focus on things they can, the need to bat well and then defend what they put up. States they have done a lot of talking about their batting and now it is time for execution, the players have to be responsible and they need to learn from their mistakes. Mentions he tries and take as much as responsibility as possible but it is a team game and everyone has to chip in. Informs they have two changes, Cottrell and Thomas sit out and Allen and Paul come in.
Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, says bowling first is not a bad thing, they have done what they have wanted to most of the times by winning the toss but that is something they can’t control. Further adds it is an opportunity to come out and execute their skills today. States they lost their way with the bat a little after a break in the last game and that is what they want to improve, they want to be professional and do well. Informs there is one change, Kuldeep goes out and Chahal comes in.
