Toss in five minutes. Sunil Gavaskar, at the pitch report, says that this could be a high-scoring affair.Pitch report from Sunil Gavaskar: The surface looks dry, there are a few cracks as well. So it might help the spinners. This is generally a high-scoring ground, unless the pitch plays slow. It's a good chasing ground as well. So you might be tempted to bowl first
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:13:56 pm
Virat Kohli: Batting first is something we re also looking to strengthen. Results are always a priority, but we need to get out of our comfort zone also. Come the World Cup, toss is not in your control, you should be able to perform whether batting or bowling first. Have a few plans in mind, will be looking to executing those. Unchanged team.

.Virat Kohli's familiar exuberance and pep talks drowned the chatter around Rishabh Pant as India prepared to play South Africa in the third T20 International in Bengaluru on Sunday, seeking a 2-0 series victory.
The comprehensive seven-wicket victory in the second game, which was built on the back of a fine comeback by the bowlers and a Kohli masterclass, is history now and the team is looking for another commanding performance before the Test series gets underway. The opener in Dharamsala was a washout.
Against a fairly new-look South African side that seems to lack the resources required to counter the home team's firepower, India will surely fancy their chances of an encore, at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Embattled wicketkeeper-batsman Pant could not deliver in the last match and as he continues to struggle with the bat, he remains under scrutiny.
