Woakes in as England bowl first
England replaced Tim Bresnan with Chris Woakes for the second one-day international against India at a packed Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.
The Kochi ground holds around 55,000 but reports locally suggest up to an additional 10,000 could have been sold as the hosts laid on a white hot atmosphere.
India, who lost the series opener, won the toss and batted first in sapping temperatures.
Bresnan was a late withdrawal due to bruising above the knee, while India also made one change to their bowling attack with Shami Ahmed in for Ashok Dinda
