Perth: Feb 8, 2012

 

Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene has won the toss and asked India to bowl first in the second One-Day International (ODI) match at WACA, Perth.

 

India let Australia off the hook in the opening match in Melbourne and missing out on an opportunity in Wednesday’s crucial clash would make the job very tough for them.

 

India’s bowling line-up is sure to have a new look on a bouncy WACA pitch. It would be not be prudent to include a spin-based attack. Ravichandran Ashwin makes way for Umesh Yadav.

 

India still feels the pain of their last visit to WACA last month when they lost the third Test to Australia in two and a half days by an innings margin.

 

It’s record at this venue though isn’t too bad. It has won three games and lost five matches since 1980 when it first played New Zealand in a triangular and won by five runs.

 

The fast outfield and less-than a steepling bounce enables big scores to be managed at this ground.

 

Teams

 

India: Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni (c&wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Zaheer Khan, Praveen Kumar, R Vinay Kumar, Ravichandran Ashwin.

 

Sri Lanka: Tillaklaratne  Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Dinesh Chandimal, Mahela Jayawardene (c), Angelo Mathews, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Lasith Malinga, Dhammika Prasad, Lahiru Thirimanne.
