In the third and final Test of the three-match series here at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground on Saturday, India have won the toss and opted to bat first. After winning the toss, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said that he has opted to bat first as he wants his openers to face some challenge. He said “Will be something for the bowlers in the first session. Want our openers to have that challenge. Our mindset of preparation has been taken in a wrong way. We don’t want to take anything away from our opposition here. Even in South Africa, it won’t be about the opposition, but about the conditions.” As far as Playing XI is concerned, opener Shikhar Dhawan and fast bowler Mohammed Shami have been called in place of KL Rahul and Umesh Yadav.
