India might have won the toss in the second Test against Australia but had to make a forced change in the starting XI after Murali Vijay injured his shoulder in the first Test at Pune. The Tamil Nadu opener was replaced by his domestic teammate, Abhinav Mukund and was one of two changes to the Indian side for the second Test.
Speaking at the toss, Virat Kohli said: “We have come here fresh. We will use the learning. It looks a good wicket and a good toss to win. We will definitely bat. When we lost in Galle, the talk was about intent. The guys will come out with more intent today. Looks like a typical Bangalore wicket. One forced change, Abhinav Mukund comes in for Murali Vijay as he has done his shoulder.”
