Tri-Series: India wins toss, opts to bat first against Pakistan

India Captain M.S. Dhoni won the toss Tuesday and elected to bat first against Pakistan at Shere Bangla National Stadium in the second match of a triangular limited-overs international tournament that also includes Bangladesh.
India included uncapped all-rounder Yusuf Pathan in its lineup after his impressive performance in the recent Indian Premier League Twenty20 cricket tournament.
Pakistan brought in bowler Rao Iftikhar in the only change from the team that won the tournament's opening match against Bangladesh by 70 runs on Sunday.
