In the second one-day international match, India's captain, Rohit Sharma, won the toss and elected to bowl first against New Zealand. However, it took him a while to make the decision and he mentioned that he had "forgotten" about the team's call. The hosts, who currently lead the three-match series 1-0, kept the same team from their opening win. New Zealand also kept the same team from their 12-run loss on Wednesday, with their captain, Tom Latham, stating that he would have also chosen to bowl first if he had won the toss.
