AB de Villiers: "It is a bit overcast. There might be movement around. We have gone with four seamers. The other surprise is we are starting with Colin Ingram, he is opening the batting. We don't want to risk Dale Steyn."

MS Dhoni: "We were looking to bowl as well. I don't think the wicket will change much. Vijay misses out. We can manage this much cold. Birmingham was really cold." Rohit Sharma will open, with Dinesh Karthik in the middle order

"A fresh venue a new start, we have to do all the right things again. Just because the stats are in our favour doesn't mean we will win the game."

India captain MS Dhoni isn't getting too carried away by the fact that South Africa haven't beaten India in the Champions Trophy.


09:00 - DID YOU KNOW?

India have won both their encounters against South Africa in the Champions Trophy, the last of which was in 2002. Of those who played that 2002 fixture, only Robin Peterson is in the current tournament's squads.
