PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – India won the toss and will bowl first in the CELKON Mobile Cup Tri-Nation Series final against Sri Lanka at Queen’s Park Oval today (July 11).
Returning captain MS Dhoni got the call right on his return and sent the Sri Lankans in first as they look to steal the advantage and will the CELKON Mobile Cup trophy.
“Looks like a better wicket than the others. It feels good and hopefully I will go through this game,” Dhoni said.
“All the tosses we lost [3 out of 4] and we made it look easy. It has been helping seamers upfront, this one looks slightly different, may not help fast bowlers as much and may help batsmen play strokes.”
