Indian captain Sourav Ganguly, who was down with a mild fever yesterday, was feeling better and was expected to play in the second one-day international against Pakistan here today.
Although the team management did not confirm Ganguly's availability for the crucial match, it is learnt that the Indian captain is keen to take the field in the day-night match.
In-form batsman V V S Laxman, who had to sit out of the first match in Karachi, because of a stiff left knee, again appears to be a doubtful starter. He has to undergo a fitness test before any decision is taken on including him in the eleven.
Left-arm pacer Ashish Nehra has, however, been ruled out because of a swollen left ankle.
