    Virat Kohli elects to field first

    Team India skipper Virat Kohli has won the toss and elected to field first. There is a bit of grass on the Gabba wicket and that could be the reason behind Kohli's decision. Kohli said that he would like to see how the pitch behaves.

The Gabba is famous for producing wickets that offer a lot of bounce and fans can expect the same on Wednesday afternoon. This may tempt both the sides to add an extra pacer to their playing XI. But, the bounce would also allow the batsmen to score freely. Even though Australia is playing without two of its star players, Kohli believes it won't be wise to take the visitors lightly. "They still have world class cricketers. Obviously missing out on two of the best batsmen is not the ideal thing for any team but even then they have guys, especially in limited-overs game, who can do damage at any given point of time," he said, ahead of the series.
