After the final Super-12 match against Zimbabwe, head coach Rahul Dravid said, “I think we have a completely open mind about everyone in the 15 (squad). We believe whoever is in the 15 (squad) will potentially not make us weak, given the kind of team we have picked.“
Adelaide’s pitch is slow
He further said, “I say again that we have to go there and see. I watched a few matches today (Sunday in Adelaide), and I know the tracks were slow and would have grip and a little turn.

It was a different kind of wicket, and it was played in Adelaide as well.“
