MI elects to field

Toss: MI elects to field.

Rohit Sharma: We'll look to bowl first. Just a team plan, nothing specific. It's a good pitch to bat on, so pretty simple, actually. As a team, we do understand where we stand at the moment, and we also know that we haven't played to the best of our potential. We know where we've made mistakes, and hopefully, we can correct them tonight. Because of where we stand now, we have had to make some complex changes that we didn't want to do. A couple of changes: Ishan goes out, and Tiwary comes in, and Nathan Coulter-Nile comes in for Milne.

KL Rahul: I was a bit confused at the toss. I don't mind batting first, and we need to assess what a good total would be. Not much to fix. It's important to realise that we are a team that has capitalised on good starts. We haven't handled the pressure well. But, when our backs are against the wall, we have done well. We need to be a bit brave and trust our instincts. We need to trust our basics and not worry about the results. Just one change: Mayank has a stiff back, and so he misses out. Mandeep Singh comes in.
