MS Dhoni has won the toss and elected to bat in the second one-day international between India and the BLACKCAPS at Westpac Stadium in Wellington.
BLACKCAPS vice-captain Brendon McCullum has been cleared to play but as a batsman after severely bruising his thumb in the last ODI, meaning Neil Broom has to make way for debutant Peter McGlashan who will keep wicket.
The Indian team have named an unchanged line up from the one that beat the BLACKCAPS by 53 runs in the rain effected match in Napier last Tuesday.
