Ashwin: We were looking to bat first as well. It looks really hard and hope it remains through the same 40 overs. It’s quite emotional to be honest. I am very happy to be back playing here but I am looking forward to it. Chris is back into the XI, Hardus is out. Mujeeb sits out as well and Tye comes in.
