England skipper Alastair Cook has won the toss and elected to bat in the second One-Day International (ODI) against Australia at Brisbane on Friday. The visitors are trailing the fie-match series 0-1.
Australia have made two changes to their side. Shane Watson has been rested for the next three ODIs and will return for the final encounter. Shaun Marsh will be replacing the explosive all-rounder. In the bowling department, Mitchell Johnson is back in the side in place of Xavier Doherty. England on the other hand are playing with the same XI.
England will be going in to the match with a little more confidence after their win against Prime Minister’s XI few days ago.
Australia: Aaron Finch, David Warner, Shaun Marsh, Michael Clarke (c), George Bailey, Glenn Maxwell, Brad Haddin (wk), James Faulkner, Mitchell Johnson, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Clint McKay
England: Alastair Cook (c), Ian Bell, Root, Gary Ballance, Eoin Morgan, Ravi Bopara, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Tim Bresnan, Chris Jordan, Boyd Rankin
