MS Dhoni: 'We will bowl first. This is one surface where there should be carry for the pacers, dew is one reason why we are chasing today. We need to make the most of the eight games before the Champions Trophy. It was a good call to rest players, with we playing 13 Tests. It's good to be back, playing for the country is big, the facilities are great. Hardik will debut, Mandeep, Jayant and Dhawal Kulkarni miss out.'
