2nd Test: India put England in to bat

Nottingham:

Skipper MS Dhoni has won the toss and has put England in to bat in the second Test at Trent Bridge, on Friday.

Sreesanth has replaced an injured Zaheer Khan in the side  while Yuvraj Singh has been included in the squad, in place of Gautam Gambhir who is still nursing his injured arm, suffered in the previous Test. For the hosts, Chris Tremlett has been replaced by Tim Bresnan.

Slightly overcast conditions means bowlers will have swing to look forward to, justifying the decision to take the field first. Rains though, are unlikely to hinder proceedings but the English openers are expected to have an uncomfortable opening session. Play will  get slightly easier once the ball begins to wear off.


Teams:

India: 1 Abhinav Mukund, 2 Yuvraj Singh, 3 Rahul Dravid, 4 Sachin Tendulkar, 5 VVS Laxman, 6 Suresh Raina, 7 MS Dhoni (capt & wk), 8 Harbhajan Singh, 9 Praveen Kumar, 10 Ishant Sharma, 11 Sreesanth

England: 1 Alastair Cook, 2 Andrew Strauss (capt), 3 Jonathan Trott, 4 Kevin Pietersen, 5 Ian Bell, 6 Eoin Morgan, 7 Matt Prior (wk), 8 Graeme Swann, 9 Stuart Broad, 10 Tim Bresnan, 11 James Anderson
