India have won the toss and have opted to field
Pakistan (Playing XI): Khurram Manzoor, Sharjeel Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed(w), Umar Akmal, Shahid Afridi(c), Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Sami, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Irfan
India (Playing XI): Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni(w/c), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ashish Nehra, Jasprit Bumrah
Afridi: We wanted to bat first anyway. We are playing 4 genuine fast bowlers. Truly speaking, we are relaxed, very motivated and that’s a good sign for me. There will be something on this pitch for the fast bowlers early on.
Dhoni: We will bowl first. I think so far we have not really judged the wicket. This is slightly harder than the last time we played here. We have seen that the sides that have lost too many wickets early have found it difficult to win games. So we need to respect the bowlers initially. Once the dew comes on the outfield, the ball comes on better and it’s easier to play the big shots. Pressure is always there. I am surviving (smiles, when asked about his back injury). Shikhar Dhawan has a niggle, Ajinkya Rahane is in.
