In all probability, the team winning the toss would love to chase down the target that has been set, especially India - who has a good record while chasing, and batting has always been its strength in spite of their batsmen falling like a pack of cards in the last T20 fixture against Pakistan. The Pakistani team might also fear that the Indian team may chase the score they set due to their strong batting line-up, so they might as well prefer to bat second, and also attack the inexperienced Indian bowlers. Apart from this, the other reason why both teams would bat second is the chance of dew on the field in the second half of the innings, which might make batting easier in the second half, as the bowlers might find it difficult for them to grip the ball.
But, things such as pitch, weather conditions, dew factor and toss are things that are beyond their control, but what is within their control is the way they perform. So, it is for sure that the team, which handles the pitch and dew conditions better in Ahmedabad - will be triumphant.
