India win toss, opt to bat first


Team India captain Virat Kohli has won the toss and opted to bat against Australia in the ICC World Cup 2019 at the Oval in London on Sunday.

Aaron Finch also wanted to bat first as both captains believed the pitch was dry and that it might get slower with the sun beating down on it. “Best conditions to bat first and put some runs on the board," Kohli said at the toss, naming an unchanged eleven that beat South Africa in their opening match.
