Birthday boy Rohit Sharma says Jofra Archer is on the side with Jason Behrendorff and Arjun Tendulkar out.

“We also played last year against the same opposition. It’s a good track and it looks a bit dry to me. We wanted to play first, we want a score in front of us. There were some ups and downs, we played good cricket and also lacked consistency. We had a good break and hopefully we can put in a good performance. We have two changes – Jofra and Arshad Khan are back, instead of Behrendorff and Arjun Tendulkar,” said Rohit Sharma during the draw.
