Rajkot - Australian captain Aaron Finch won the toss and made India bat first
in the second one day international between the two fierce rivals on
India must win in Rajkot to avoid a humiliating home defeat in the
three match series after their 10 wicket drubbing in the first game.
Finch said it was a "beautiful wicket" which made it an automatic choice to give his bowlers the first chance on the pitch.
KL Rahul became the official wicketkeeper for India, with Rishabh
Pant ruled out following a concussion in Tuesday's match. Rahul stood in
for Pant after he left the field in Mumbai.
Manish Pandey takes Pant's place as batsman while Navdeep Saini comes
in for Shardul Thakur in a bid to bolster India's fast bowling.
India captain Virat Kohli put himself back as number three batsman
after experimenting by putting his three options for openers at the top
of the order for the first game.
The series is a key preparation for both sides ahead of the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia starting in October.
