It was not the first time when Iyer tried something different at toss as in the initial stage he kissed the coin on a couple of occasion before flipping it.

Cummins said that the team wants to crack with the bat first as they have done well while defending the target.

"We will bat first. Looks like a good wicket, played on a different wicket the other night. There was no dew on the other night's game, but when it does, it's very damaging. We've had now dew the other night, I don't feel there'll be any today, I want to crack with the bat first. We have a style that doesn't work always, but when it does work, it's very damaging. We have done well defending scores. Pretty much the same, Shahbaz comes in for Samad," Cummins said at the toss.

Meanwhile, in the qualifier 1, Cummins chose the same after winning the toss but the result didn't go in their favour.

Despite losing the toss, Iyer looked happy with the outcome as he was looking to bowl first.

"We would have bowled, we'll get a fair idea about how the pitch will play. It's red soil and we played our last game on a similar surface. We need to stay with the present, stick to the basics and execute all our plans. Every individual is taking responsibility, this is a big game, and we've plenty of people who're playing in a final for the first time, nervous, but this is also a good chance. We're going with the same team," Iyer said.
