Ravichandran Ashwin – Too early to get any spice in the tournament. We don’t know where we are heading towards in the tournament. We will treat it just as a normal game. We have got two changes. Unfortunately, Axar Patel has a small niggle and he misses out. Barinder Sran comes in place of him and Chris Gayle is in for Marcus Stoinis.
MS Dhoni – We are bowling first. Pitch looks good as of now, quite a few venues are getting dew so it is always good to chase. We have a forced change. Suresh Raina is not fit, he is not ready so Murali Vijay comes in place of him. I look good and I don’t have any serious niggle. Yes, we are a team of over-aged people so we have to keep ourselves fit. It is all about the process how much you train and how much you rest. With old age you get experience and that is good.
