Mohali [India], Dec 13 (ANI): Sri Lanka have won the toss and asked India to bat first in the do-or-die second ODI of the three-match series at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium here on Wednesday.
After the toss, stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma said that he too would have opted to bowl first, had he won the toss.
"It is a sticky wicket, and we will have to change the mindset when we bat. Every game teaches you so many things," he added.
Lanka skipper Thisara Perera, on the other hand, said, "These are overcast conditions, and we will want to make use of it.I think this wicket is better than the last wicket. I know this wicket; I have been playing for Kings XI Punjab."
The defeat not only hurt India, but it was also an eye-opener for a team who has remained dominant all throughout the long home season so far.
Lanka, on the other hand, will strike with full force in order to clinch their maiden ODI series win this year.
