"We will bowl first. Looks like a fresh wicket. We have quality seamers. Hence we will exploit that. It's (Playing XI) a tough one to choose. The four overseas players are Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Heather Knight and Sophie Devine. We will figure out the rest of the players. This is a great opportunity for the girls to show what they have got. I just joined the team a couple of days ago. But we have prepared really well."

Lanning's comments

"Yeah the pitch looks pretty good, it has even covering of grass it looks like it will play the same throughout the game. It would be good to bat on though. We are playing with three quicks and three spinners. We have given some sort of role to every player, let's hope that we come together well today."

The match starts at 3:30 IST. It'll be interesting to see how the two teams will fare against each other.
