2nd ODI: India look to draw level

Bristol, England:

After losing their first match in the NatWest series, Rahul Dravid has made it clear that he will have to rethink everything, including the batting order and combination and number of bowlers.

"Everytime you lose you have re-look at your strategy and combinations and see if you need to change it or not. Yes, the option of playing an extra bowler will come into equation. but we will make the final decision after having a look at the conditions tomorrow," said Indian skipper Rahul Dravid.

Some of the bowlers and batsmen, however, skipped Thursday's training session in Bristol thanks to a bit of a body ache.

Those included Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh and pacers Zaheer Khan and Ajit Agarkar. All five are, however, available for selection for the second ODI with the team officials saying that the players were given rest just as a precautionary measure.

The hosts had beaten India by 104 runs in the 1st of the seven-match ODI series at Rose Bowl on Tuesday.
