Chris Morris, Mohammad Nabi among men to watch out

DC's Chris Morris was phenomenal with the ball in the last game, claiming 3/30, and would again be aiming to repeat the show.

As for their bowling, all-rounder Mohammad Nabi's 4/11 has put some focus on him.

Pitch report

Another sluggish track at Kotla?

As we have said earlier, Kotla has always been a sluggish track, which mostly assists spin bowling, along with some seam movement.

It would be no different for this tie.

This is why the sides are likely to go with a bowling dominated playing XI, especially with an extra spinner.

This could mean that changes could be likely from the previous playing XI.

Predicted XI
