MS Dhoni won the toss and decided to bowl, with the rain forecast in mind. Dhoni praised the Ahmedabad pitch for behaving very well and hoped that it stays the same through the game. He also praised the crowd for coming back after suffering last night.
Hardik Pandya said he would have bowled too and added that his heart told him that batting first won’t be that bad as its a flat track.
