Adelaide - Australia won the toss and chose to bat in the second one-day international against India on Tuesday in Adelaide, where temperatures around 40 degrees Celsius are forecast for the match.

LIVE: Australia v India, 2nd ODI

Australia can clinch the three-game series after beating Virat Kohli's team by 34 runs in Sydney on Saturday.

"Looks like a good wicket to bat on and I don't think it'll change much throughout," Australia captain Aaron Finch said.

"We played a really good game the other day. I think it's a good chance to put some pressure on with a good score."

Kohli said he would have batted if he had won the toss.

"It looks a great wicket to play on. The conditions are going to be a big factor for us as it's hot and humid," Kohli said.

"We were a bit scratchy at Sydney, just to get the one-day side together. We like to be in these situations where we get to bounce back as a team." 

The Australians are unchanged but India made one change to their team with Mohammed Siraj replacing paceman Khaleel Ahmed.

The last couple of ODIs in Adelaide have been low scoring affairs, with Australia defending 231 against South Africa earlier this season.
