Kyle Coetzer | Scotland skipper: Very happy with that, we were gonna bowl first. Even in IPL, we saw chasing teams having that advantage so really happy. The boys got a chance to enjoy themselves, but in our mind, we believe that we can make it through that group stage and really privileged to be here. We haven’t made any changes. The team has been performing well and at the moment we are comfortable sticking to the same team (that did well in the group stages)

Mohammad Nabi | Afghanistan skipper: We will bat first. The wicket is dry so we will try and put runs on the board and defend it. The pitch looks good for batting and we will try to restrict them.

Pitch Report by Anjum Chopra and Bazid Khan

“A high scoring game yesterday. The surface today has a few patches of brown, and the other aspect on this pitch is dimensions so you expect the batsmen to target the shorter side. It’s not just about the pitch, but it’s also about match-ups”
