Kane Williamson: We would have batted first. Looks like a used pitch. We would want to do well with the ball and then, hopefully, some dew later. Amazing occasion. Four years ago, it was a similar situation but a different location. They have been playing some good cricket. There is always a building phase between the tournaments. You need to assess what is in front of you when the tournament starts. We are going with the same team from the previous match.
Rohit Sharma: We are going to bat first. Looks like a good pitch. Looks like it’s on the slower side. Whatever we do, we need to do well. I think it was back in 2019 when we played the semis. NZ is one of the most consistent sides. A very important day. Constantly talking about how important it is to turn up on that day. It is about controlling the controllables. Same team.
