“We are gonna have a bowl first. There is a bit of grass. Looks a bit different. Good for our confidence. It is good that batting got us home. Looking at the wicket. We hope that it assists our bowlers. Same team. Shams is good and so is David. We would want to improve our fielding,” said Bavuma at the toss.

On the other hand, Bangladesh made two changes as Shamim Hossain and Nasum Ahmed came in place of Shakib Al Hasan and Nasum Ahmed for this match.

“We would have bowled first. Mustafizur is missing. He is resting. Shakib has been our go to guy. It is a huge loss. It presents other guys a wonderful opportunity. The three games we have played, we were close to winning in two of those games. We would like to play some good cricket,” said Mahmudullah at the toss.
