India have brought in Harbhajan Singh in place of Umesh Yadav, who has a sore back.
England have replaced Ian Bell with Jonny Bairstow is in and replaced Tim Bresnan with Monty Panesar.
Mentally, India have a great advantage, as England manage to bury themselves under extreme pressure when you threaten them with spin.
Decades of having toured the Indian subcontinent has made no difference whatsoever.
Dhoni's much discussed 'demand' that the curator at Wankhede better serve his team a track that turns from the first over may not necessarily see R Ashwin or Pragyan Ojha taking the new ball.
But even if Zaheer Khan does, England's mind may be on the first change.
From the dryness of the surface to the exact length of each blade of grass on the pitch, how soon it starts getting rougher and how much of an exact deviation do Ashwin or Ojha get will occupy England's mind more than anything else.
In fact, it's not just a turning wicket that the Indian skipper has demanded. The track also needs to have bounce and the ball has to move quicker off the pitch.
