What Dhoni had to say!

Speaking after the toss, Dhoni said," We don't look at the result, it's bipolar. We look at doing the basics well. We will bowl first. It's one of those wickets, if you don't bowl in the right areas you will be punished. I feel it's important to let the opposition put the runs on board and we will chase it later. With so much grass, it doesn't look like a turner. We need to adapt quickly and take the game forward. We have got Mohit in place of Santner.
