COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews has won the toss and chosen to bat first in the second one-day international against Australia at R. Premadasa Stadium.

The hosts made two changes to the side that lost the first game by three wickets last Sunday, leaving out spinner Lakshan Sandakan and all-rounder Milinda Siriwardana. They have been replaced by Seekkuge Prasanna and Danushka Gunathilaka.

Australia strengthened is spin attack by recalling off spinner Nathan Lyon in place of fast bowler Josh Hazlewood.
