India wins toss, to bat 1st in 2nd ODI vs Australia

KOLKATA, India (AP) – India won the toss on Thursday and elected to bat first in the second one-day cricket international, with the hosts fielding an unchanged side from the one which beat Australia by 26 runs in the first game of the five-match series.

Australia made two changes from the opener. Pace bowler Kane Richardson, who last played an ODI match against New Zealand in February 2016, replaces James Faulkner. Left-arm spinner Ashton Agar is in for leg-spinner Adam Zampa.
