Agniv Pan is included in the squad, dropping Promod Chandila. About his playing tomorrow, Manoj said, “We have lot of options. Whether he plays tomorrow is not yet decided. But we will obviously go with the most appropriate combination possible.”
“Maharashtra is a good side. We are expecting a tough competition from them,” Manoj concluded.
