Wilson: India chase well but we have to look at our own game. We’ve had four games and a game against Sussex, the prep has been good. Hopefully, we can cause an upset. No Porterfield and McBrine.
Kohli: We would have bowled first as well. But on the outside, the sun is out and the wicket will play well. Not a bad thing. We practiced in London, and the guys have played IPL cricket as well. If it was Test cricket, time could have been a problem. The weather is something we’ve got to get used to. I was 70% a month ago and feeling good now.
Ireland won the toss and India will bat first.
