VISAKHAPATNAM, India — India skipper Virat Kohli has won the toss and elected to bat in the second limited-overs international against West Indies as he bids to surpass 10,000 runs in the 50-over format.

Kohli, who scored 140 from 107 balls in India's series-opening eight-wicket victory on the weekend, is on 9,919 runs from 204 innings and is aiming to reach the five-figure milestone on home soil in the five-game series.

Both teams made one change, with India bringing in Kuldeep Yadav to add an extra spin option at the expense of Khaleel Ahmed, and left-arm paceman Obed McCoy getting a debut for the West Indies in favor of Oshane Thomas.
