Gwalior: India skipper MS Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat against South Africa in the second One-dayer of the three match series at the Captain Roop Singh Stadium at Gwalior on Wednesday.
After escaping with a narrow win in Jaipur, India would aim to plug their bowling loopholes and seal the three-match series to retain the number two spot in ICC rankings when they take on South Africa in the second ODI on Wednesday.
India are unchanged from the team that edged home in Jaipur. Sehwag's fit and Sreesanth, who took a beating in the first game, keeps his spot.
South Africa have made three changes in their bid to level the series - Hashim Amla, JP Duminy and Roelof van der Merwe are in. Loots Bosman, Albie Morkel and Johan Botha are out.
There was some rain a day ago in Gwalior but not today. It's a relatively cool day too and the fans are out in force.
India: MS Dhoni (capt & wk), SR Tendulkar, V Sehwag, V Kohli, SK Raina, YK Pathan, KD Karthik, RA Jadeja, P Kumar, A Nehra, S Sreesanth.
South Africa: HM Amla, HH Gibbs, JH Kallis (capt), AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, AN Petersen, MV Boucher (wk), RE van der Merwe, WD Parnell, DW Steyn, CK Langeveldt.
