Warner said after losing the toss, “At the moment, we’re batting second all the time, so [it] doesn’t matter [laughs]. The last game Kane and Johnny finished it off – we should have done it earlier.” He further disclosed, “Bhuvi has pulled up sore and Suchith is coming in for him. Each wicket is pretty much the same here.”
