Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, chose to bowl first against Pakistan after winning the toss. When India prepares to settle the score with Pakistan in the pivotal Asia Cup match today, the skipper will have a new approach to his team’s batting, and a master hitter who is at a crossroads and trying to reinvent himself will strive to write a new chapter in the history books.
The two cornerstones of India’s white-ball team for the previous ten years, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, now know exactly where they stand and what needs to be done to turn the tables after taking a severe beating at this same location at the T20 World Cup ten months ago.
Pitch Report – Sanjay Manjrekar can be found at the pitch. He claims that bowling first is the best course of action because the wicket has a good quantity of grass cover. He continues, saying there is plenty in it for the seamers despite the slightly changed pitch from the previous game.
