2nd ODI: India win toss, elect to bat first against SA
Johannesburg: Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat against South Africa in their second One-day international cricket match here Saturday.
Both teams are in the process of finalising their squads for the World Cup next month, and chose to retain the same line-ups from Durban. Yusuf Pathan remained unpicked, with India deciding to stick with M Vijay at the top and Rohit Sharma in the middle order, and Sreesanth was also left out. South Africa, too, appear to have a No.7 spot up for grabs but they persisted with David Miller instead of legspinning allrounder Faf du Plessis.India
Both the teams did not make any changes to the respective side that played in Durban.
South Africa beat India by 135 runs at Durban.
India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain and wicket-keeper), Sachin Tendulkar, Murali Vijay, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Ashish Nehra, Munaf Patel, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan.
