Rohit Sharma: I would have batted anyways. Sun is shinning and it looks a good pitch. It is a good toss to lose. We would have to come here and assess the conditions. There would be initial assistance for the fast bowlers. Play out the initial overs and see where the game goes from there. It is a rare honour. I am really honoured to be captain of Team India. It is a great responsibilty. I am ready for it. It is a great challenge. I have a great set of players with me. We would want to do something special today.

Thisara Perera: We want to bowl first. It looks like a good batting track. We want to chase. We want to do well. Some players are coming off injury.
