    Special to get a World Cup 100: Rohit Sharma

    Was a good pitch to bat. Backing myself to play my natural game. Knew wicket would get easier once I'd get my eye in. It's something I've been working on for a while. Special to get a World Cup 100. Very happy about that. Don't want to think about records too much because I know there's a long way to go ahead and not to lose my focus and what's required. Just want to make it count on days like this. Some of my play is premeditated, can't just go out and play big shots. Sometimes, you go by instinct. It's a mixture of both. I know it's my responsibility to give the team a good start and put the team in a good position as much as possible. It's something I've done for a while and love. Looks good when it works out. It doesn't always come off but I want to back myself to keep trying and put pressure on the opposition.

    Toss Update

    Afghanistan have won the toss and opted to bat first

  • 1:30 PM (IST) Posted by Aditya Kukalyekar

    Pitch Report

     Gautam Gambhir says he'd have loved to have played on this wicket, looks a belter. Sanjay Manjrekar says he was told before the last game that the average first-innings score was 230 but SA got 428. Says it doesn't look too different today. Shami for Ashwin is the change that Gambhir thinks India might make, to strengthen the bowling. Sanjay says short boundaries need to be considered. In such cases, you need good bowlers. But in pitches like this, go for quality. Predictions: 350 par for India if they bat first, says GG.

  • 1:17 PM (IST) Posted by Aditya Kukalyekar

    What happened in the previous game at venue?

    South Africa and Sri Lanka faced each other in the previous World Cup game here last week. A lot of records were broken on a flat pitch. Will more records be broken today?

    Happy Birthday Hardik Pandya

    Hardik Pandya is celebrating his birthday today. Here's what he has to say:

    "Not much of a celebration. When I got up, my son got me a board as a gift, which he made a couple of days back which was a pleasant surprise. Team-mates sent a lot of wishes as well. We really bowled well against Australia, we kept pressure, held the right areas and used the conditions to our advantage. We were under pressure when we lost quick wickets but credit to KL and Virat for absorbing the pressure. Finger is better today. For the first time in my life, I got hit like this, where I wasn't able to bowl much and got blood. But it's fine so far. Gotta see how I bowl and field. Was just a bruise, should be fine. Expectations are high, you've seen the excitement around. It's special for us to play World Cup at home, with so much love and affection."
