Harare - India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bowl first in the second one-day international against Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club on Monday.
The toss was slightly delayed by a wet outfield, but by the time Dhoni had announced an unchanged team to the one that beat Zimbabwe by nine wickets on Saturday, the skies were looking a little brighter.
Zimbabwe made one change to their side, with Craig Ervine ruled out by an injury to his left hamstring and Sean Williams drafted in.
Williams had missed the series opener after failing to prove his fitness.
The three-match series concludes on Wednesday, ahead of three Twenty20 internationals that start on Saturday.
Zimbabwe: Chamu Chibhabha, Peter Moor, Hamilton Masakadza, Vusi Sibanda, Sean Williams, Sikandar Raza Butt, Elton Chigumbura, Richmond Mutumbami, Graeme Cremer (captain), Taurai Muzarabani, Tendai Chatara
India: K.L. Rahul, Manish Pandey, Karun Nair, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Axar Patel, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jasprit Bumrah, Barinder Sran, Yuzvendra Chahal
