India have won the toss and have opted to field
Rohit: We’re gonna field first. Looks a good pitch. Rajkot has always been a good pitch. I see some tracks there but this has always been a good surface. I also hear that there might be some dew later on, and that should help chasing. I’m aware of the stats but like I said, it gives us to do unusual things (regarding defending scores). But having said that, once you know what to chase, it’s easier for batsmen. They know what tempo to go at. We’re unchanged. I think didn’t perform that badly in the last game.
Mahmudullah: I don’t think so (about toss being a factor). Pitch looks really hard, nice to bat on. I would have loved to bowl first too but now will want to put some runs on the board. It’s a good oppportunity for all of us (to win the series). Need put all these thoughts aside and do the basics well. Important for the senior players to do well. Even the youngsters have done well. We’re unchanged too.
