Right then. We are done with the pre-match formalities. Virat Kohli has his team in a huddle before they walk out on the field. The players take the knee to support the Black Lives Matter movement. Kyle Coetzer and George Munsey are the openers. Jasprit Bumrah to start with the ball. Here we go...
We are set for the clash. The teams walk out for the national anthems. First, the anthem of Scotland will be played, followed by India's.
Ravichandran Ashwin is up for a quick chat, says that it feels like making a debit all over again. Says that the Indian T20 League is a stage for every player and he tries to improve every game. Tells that he continues to enjoy the game by trying a few things in the nets. Adds that Scotland are fine side and the way they are playing this tournament, India have to turn up and play the way they used to.
Kyle Coetzer, the skipper of Scotland, says that he is happy with whatever asked for. Says that it is a great day for Scottish cricket and they will enjoy the game. Informs that they are going with the same team.
Virat Kohli, the skipper of India, says dew is going to be a factor and they want to restrict them to a low score and then chase it down. Jokes that they should have played the first game on his birthday as they finally won a toss on his birthday. Mentions the intensity has to be there from ball one and they have to maintain it throughout the game. Informs they have one change, Varun Chakravarthy comes in for Thakur.
Scotland (Unchanged playing XI) - George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer (C), Matthew Cross (WK), Richie Berrington, Calum MacLeod, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Alasdair Evans, Safyaan Sharif, Brad Wheal.
India (Playing XI) - KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (C), Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (WK), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Varun Chakravarthy (In for Shardul Thakur), Mohammed Shami, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah.
We are all set for the all important toss. Up goes the coin and it lands in the favour of INDIA. THEY HAVE ELECTED TO BOWL FIRST.
Scotland are yet to win a game after making it through into the Super 12s. They would love to take a leaf out of the book of the Lankans who spoiled the party for the Windies. They too would love to end India's hopes of going through and bag their first win by upsetting the odds. However, they'll have to play a lot better than they have done so far. Stay tuned for the toss and other updates.
The Indians will be dearly hoping that Namibia can somehow create some magic and topple the New Zealand side who at the moment look well in control of their game. Why? Because with each win for the Kiwis, India's chances of going through decreases. However, India will have to play their part to. They will need to continue to win handsomely. They managed to do so against Afghanistan and they now face a side which is probably a little easier than the last team they faced. We can surely expect another convincing win for India against Scotland. Welcome to the coverage.
