Trent Bridge: Jul 29, 2011

India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bowl against England in the second Test on Friday.

India, trailing by 0-1 in the series, will be without regular opener Gautam Gambhir, who has a stiff right elbow.

Left-arm swing bowler Zaheer Khan is already missing from line-up because of a right hamstring strain.

In the absence of Gambhir and Zaheer, left-handed batsman Yuvraj Singh and right-arm fast bowler Sreesanth have been picked in the eleven.

England also show a change from their Lord’s playing eleven with paceman Chris Tremlett being ruled out because of a niggle in the right hamstring.

Tim Bresnan, the Yorkshire fast bowler, will fill in his place for England in this Test.


England: Andrew Strauss (c), Alastair Cook, Jonathan Trott, Kevin Pietersen, Ian Bell, Eoin Morgan, Matt Prior (wk), Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, James Anderson, Tim Bresnan.

India: Abhinav Mukund, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (c&wk), Harbhajan Singh, Praveen Kumar, S Sreesanth, Ishant Sharma.
