Cheack What Kohli said after the Toss:

Decision to Field

Read: Preview: India vs South Africa

We are going to bowl. Teams have been chasing well. The wicket should stay the same throughout the game. We'll know exactly what to do when we come out to bat. We have batted pretty well in both the games, not many teams have got 320 scores in this tournament. Just that we couldn't defend it last game, maybe we were 15-20 short. When you bat second you know exactly what you need to do, so that stress for us is out of the way and we can just focus on restricting the opposition now. 

On Playing XI

Ashwin comes in for Umesh. They have three left-handers, so bringing in an off-spinner could be a great thing for us."
