Toss Australia opt to bat vs India

Australia won the toss and decided to bat in the second ODI against India at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. They made one change to their winning XI from the first ODI, bringing in pace-bowling allrounder Kim Garth for right-arm medium-pacer Megan Schutt.
India, meanwhile, handed an ODI debut to spin-bowling allrounder Shreyanka Patil. She was recently brought into the fold in the T20I format against England earlier this month and she replaced left-arm spinner Saika Ishaque, who had herself made her debut in the previous match.

In another change for India, vice-captain Smriti Mandhana returned in place of Shafali Verma. Mandhana was unwell, and thus unavailable for selection in the series opener.

On Saturday, it was a different surface being used from the first ODI, with shorter boundary on one side, and more grass on one end of the pitch. Alyssa Healy noted that the pitch looked a bit dry.

Australia lead the three-match series 1-0, after easing their way to a six-wicket win in Mumbai on Thursday. India have never beaten Australia in a bilateral ODI series. So if the hosts happen to lose on Saturday too, their wait for their first ODI series victory over Australia will stretch even further.

India: 1 Yastika Bhatia (wk), 2 Smriti Mandhana, 3 Richa Ghosh (wk), 4 Harmanpreet Kaur (capt), 5 Jemimah Rodrigues, 6 Deepti Sharma, 7 Amanjot Kaur, 8 Sneh Rana, 9 Pooja Vastrakar, 10 Renuka Singh, 11 Shreyanka Patil

Australia: 1 Phoebe Litchfield, 2 Alyssa Healy (capt & wk), 3 Ellyse Perry, 4 Beth Mooney, 5 Tahlia McGrath, 6 Ashleigh Gardner, 7 Annabel Sutherland, 8 Kim Garth, 9 Georgia Wareham, 10 Alana King, 11 Darcie Brown
