Mumbai: Dec 22, 2012
England won toss and elected to bowl first against India in the second Twenty20 match of the Airtel series at Mumbai.
After a humiliating Test series loss to England, MS Dhoni-led India put up a good all-round performance to win the first T20 at Pune, much to Dhoni’s relief after his captaincy has come under severe scrutiny.
Eoin Morgan rued his side’s lack of discipline as they suffered a five-wicket loss in the first T20 match at Pune and will hope his side can pick themselves up and end a good tour with a win in coloured kits.
England have handed Joe Root a debut who comes in place of Danny Briggs. Test discard Rohit Sharma comes in for Ravindra Jadeja.
England(Probables): Alex Hales, Michael Lumb, Luke Wright, Eoin Morgan (c), Samit Patel, Jos Buttler (wk), Tim Bresnan, James Tredwell, Stuart Meaker, Joe Root, Jade Dernbach
India (Probables): Gautam Gambhir, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni (c & wk), R Ashwin, Piyush Chawla, Ashok Dinda, Parvinder Awana
