2nd Test:Ind win toss, put Eng in to bat

Trent Bridge, July 29: Indian captain M S Dhoni has won the toss at Trent Bridge, the scene of the second Test between India and England of the former' ongoing tour, and raising eye-brows yet again, has opted to bowl first.

The pitch is supposed to be more conducive for batting and Dhoni might be coerced into ruing his decision. But with a batting line-up that has been shuffled due to the last minute ruling-out of opener Gautam Gambhir, Dhoni is left with little choice but to delay the Indian innings.

Dhoni also said that Indian fast bowler Sreesanth has been called-in to fill the boots of the injured Zaheer Khan. The Kerala seamer will join Ishant Sharma and Praveen Kumar to constitute the Indian pace attack. Meanwhile, Yuvraj Singh gets the nod to help bolster up the Indian middle order and will perhaps follow Raina in the Indian line-up.
