India wins toss and bats first against England in 4th ODI

India wins toss and bats first against England in 4th ODI

India won the toss and elected to bat Thursday at Old Trafford in the fourth one-day international against England on Thursday.
England allrounder Andrew Flintoff was cleared to play after missing his team's 42-run win over India at Birmingham on Monday with a right knee injury. That win gave England a 2-1 lead in the seven-match series.
Flintoff replaces fast bowler Chris Tremlett. England captain Paul Collingwood was also named in the starting lineup despite missing Wednesday's practice because of stomach cramps.
India made one change, bringing in allrounder Ajit Agarkar for seamer Munaf Patel. Captain Rahul Dravid has now won all four tosses so far in the series.
