Mohali: Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has won the toss and elected to bat first in the second Test against England at Mohali. Bad light and overcast conditions delayed the start of the Test.
England are seeking a series-levelling win after India won the opening Test in Chennai by six wickets, but don't seem to have a clue how to snap the seemingly never-ending string of defeats in India right from the ODI series.
Stuart Broad replaces Steve Harmison for England. Broad missed the first Test with a hamstring injury he picked up during the ODI series.
