Meanwhile, Australia opted to bat first. Rohit also confessed he would have wanted to have batted first.
“We know what needs to be done. Siraj is rested and Shami is back. It’s always nice to have some time off. We need to regroup as a team, you can reflect on so many things. Not the surface what we saw in the first three Tests, looks a good pitch, I hope it stays the same for all five days,” Rohit said at the toss.
