Australia to bat first in Twenty20

AUSTRALIA have won the toss and will bat first in Friday's second Twenty20 clash with India at the MCG.

The home side, who lead the two-match series one-nil, have made three changes.

Opener Aaron Finch, number three Shaun Marsh and paceman Clint McKay come into the side for Travis Birt, Dan Christian and James Faulkner. 

A big crowd of over 70,000 is expected and the match is due to start in warm conditions with a temperature of around 25 degrees.

The pitch is likely to suit the batsmen and India captain MS Dhoni said he was not concerned about having to bat second on the drop-in pitch.
