Bangalore: Virat KohliVirat Kohli on Friday indicated that India would prefer chasing rather than setting a target if the home side wins the toss in Saturday's series-decider one-day international against Australia here.

"Personally I feel good to chase because you know the target to meet. (We) can plan better and analyse how to play in different situations. I (also) feel good to calculate and play, which bowler to target and which ball to hit," he told reporters at the pre-match press conference.

"While batting first, we need to assess the batting conditions and big partnerships are important to score high. Whether batting first or second, partnership is very crucial for the team. We need to be in strong position," he added.
