Angelo Mathews speaks: "I was going to have a bat first as well. Looks a good pitch, decent covering of grass and should hold on well. Looks good to bat but you cannot win all the tosses. (On being in a must-win scenario) The more you think, more pressure you will put yourself under. Crucial to go out there and have some fun. He (Malinga) was terrific last game and hopefully he can contribute to a winning cause today. Three changes due to the conditions."

Toss Time! Afghanistan win toss and opt to bat first.  "We will bat first, want to put runs on the board and then defend it with our bowling. Seems like too much grass but we are used to playing in these conditions. We know the conditions well. We have one seamer, one all-rounder and three spinners apart from one part-time spinner," Asghar Afghan.

Pitch Report by Rameez Raja:  The surface looks totally different from Dubai where we had no grass at all. The pitch here looks quite green but don't go by the looks because from my experience, the pitches in Abu Dhabi have been good for batting.
