England wins toss, bowls 1st in 2nd ODI against India as teams begin build-up to World Cup

  • Print

CARDIFF, Wales - England has won the toss and will bowl first against India in the second one-day international in Cardiff on Wednesday as the two countries begin their long build-up to the World Cup.

Big-hitting opener Alex Hales will make his ODI debut for England after making a big impression in Twenty20 internationals, and limited-overs specialists Eoin Morgan and James Tredwell also come in.

India, the world champion and Champions Trophy winner in the 50-over format, should put up a better fight than in the recent test series, in which the team capitulated to a 3-1 loss.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan is recalled after poor form in the test series and Suresh Raina is also back for the Indians.

The first ODI of the five-match series was abandoned Monday because of rain without a ball being bowled.
