India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat against the West Indies in their Group B World Cup match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
The centre pitch is being used today. It was the same pitch that was used for the England-South Africa match. The wicket has been nicely rolled in, it is a hard wicket, while there will be some bounce for the bowlers. 260-270 is a par score, feels Ravi Shastri.
