Mahendra Singh Dhoni wins the toss for India, chooses to bat

  • Print

NOTTINGHAM, England - India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss Wednesday and chose to bat in the first test match against England at Trent Bridge.

Stuart Binny will make his test debut for India in the match, while Ravindra Jadeja will bat at five and also provide a spin alternative to a four-man seam attack.

England has made one lineup change from its last test match against Sri Lanka — a 1-0 series defeat in June — with allrounder Ben Stokes replacing Chris Jordan.

Matt Prior will also start for England despite feeling tightness in his right thigh on Monday, which prompted the team to add Jos Buttler as cover for the wicketkeeper.

India has not won away from home in 14 test matches, losing ten and drawing four.
