Both the captains during the toss

Lasith Malinga said, “I think it will help us play a little more free. The important thing is that we adjust to the conditions. We have made three changes. Oshawa, Bhanuka and Kasun Rajitha are not playing. Avishka, Dickwella and Isuru have come in.”

Aaron Finch said, “I was a bit undecided. I was leaning towards batting first. But there feels like there’s some dew around in the last half an hour. So that was swaying me to bowl. Bowling first, I’m not too disappointed. Billy Stanlake comes in. He can get bounce out of most pitches. It’s exciting for him on his home ground.”
