MS DHONI (CHENNAI SUPER KINGS):
Hopefully the wicket won’t slow down much. We got time at a very important juncture and it will also help us reflect what we need to change in batting and bowling. Momentum when it comes to batting is one of the key aspects. The length has been crucial and experience really plays in. Vijay, Ruturaj and Hazlewood make way for Rayudu, Shardul and Bravo.

Both the captain are in the middle. It’s toss time, folks.
PITCH REPORT – By Michael Slater and Kevin Pietersen
Dimension wise it’s same on both square boundaries. There is not a lot of grass on the pitch. The Test match length has been hard to get away on this pitch. Maybe, it will play a little low today and the team that wins the toss might bat first
Here the THALA comes:
