Pitch Report : “Looks a good track and there could be some swing upfront. We’re bang center today and Adelaide Oval is known for long-straight boundaries. And short square boundaries. Looks to be an absolute belter. There is a cover of grass that should help the surface to hold together and the best part is that it’s a rock-hard surface. The average score here has been 157 but this looks a high-scoring track.”
India Playing XI: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma(c), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant(w), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh.
Rohit Talk: “We would have batted first anyway. We’ve played some good cricket, another opportunity for us to play the same way we have all tournament. Important to hold the nerve and take the game will the end. We’ve played these guys a fair bit in recent years and know what strengths-weaknesses they have. Important to exploit that. Important to stay calm and do what we want to do. It (injury) was a scare but I’m fine now. The kind of talent we have, it was a tough one (to pick the XI). Same team for us”.
England Playing XI: Jos Buttler(w/c), Alex Hales, Philip Salt, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid.
Buttler Talk: “We’re gonna bowl first. There is going to be a great atmosphere here. Dimensions at different, we will have to adapt. We have two changes – Malan and Wood are out with injuries – Salt and Jordan come in. Looks a good wicket. Hope it stays well the whole game”.
