Kohli: "Not such a bad position to be in. Winning the toss, the pressure is on the side that has to put up the runs. We will try to make important breakthroughs. Good wicket this, a bit of dampness for the past few days. It's the best session for our seamers to bowl actually. Winning is a great habit and we have created that. Important to carry on, do the good work and it's important to not take the foot off the pedal. Losing two tosses and winning those games - that's the kind of thing that makes you a better team. We are playing some good cricket and that's exactly our motivation. Chennai is always a place where we love playing. The crowd knows what the team is trying to do. Two local boys, so a special occasion for them. They are ready to go. Ashwin has been a match winner for us for a while. I wish them luck."


Cook: "Yeah. It's a good toss to win and we will bat first. Looks a very good surface considering what has happened over the last week. Never seen a pitch dried with coal before. It can be a blessing in disguise, not having nets before the game. We need to mentally get ourselves right. We have one opportunity to do that. Liam Dawson is on debut, proud moment for him. Broad is back, Jimmy and Woakes miss out."
