David Warner: 'We've seen high totals get chased down here. It's a great place to play cricket. I think it could rain, but can't control it. We will bowl first. We've got to take wickets in the first six overs. Kane will bat at No. 3 today. Dale will play later, but he's missing out again tonight.
Virat Kohli: 'It was a right start for us as a team. We would like to make some improvement with the bat, the bowlers came back well. Me and Chris have complemented well with the bat before and that is why I decided to open. This time around we've got the right balance. Off the field we are quite easy. We've got the same XI as the last game
