Sanju Samson, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, and Deepak Hooda are playing in the opening contest.

“We were looking to chase as well because we are not sure about pitches in India these days,” said Rohit. “The pitch played pretty well when when we played over here against West Indies three-four years ago.
