Jason Holder: Oppurtunity for our guys to get some runs first. Probably would wanted to bowl first on a fresh wicket. There is a lot at stake. We guys have planned well for this game and we are up for it.

It is a matter of adapting to particular individuals on that day. We have got three changes. Evin Lewis comes in, Russell comes back and Shannon Gabriel is making his first appearance.

Eoin Morgan: We are gonna have a bowl first. The wicket has been under covers for last 24 hours. There has been a lot of rain around and we feel there would be some moisture on it.

Completely different challenge that we had against Bangladesh. The World Cup is about adapting to conditions. Tough challenge for us. We have got the same team.
