India, trailing 1-0, wins toss, bowls in 2nd ODI vs. New Zealand

  • Print

HAMILTON, New Zealand - India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and chose to bowl Wednesday in the second one-day game against New Zealand which began under the threat of rain at Seddon Park.

New Zealand leads the five-match series 1-0 after winning at Napier by 24 runs.

India made no changes to its lineup on Wednesday as Dhoni said it was only in the last few overs at Napier, when it lost quick wickets, that its run chase went awry and that "apart from that we played good cricket."

New Zealand made one change, naming veteran seamer Kyle Mills to replace Adam Milne who has a strained abdominal muscle.

Captain Brendon McCullum said he would have chosen to bat first on a pitch which seems likely to slower than Napier.

"There were a few things we were pretty pleased with (in the first match)," McCullum said. "Our fielding and our bowling was excellent and the blueprint with the bat is something we'll try to replicate throughout the series."
