India vs Australia 5th ODI : Australia wins toss, bats first in choosing fifth ODI versus India

Australia captain Aaron Finch won the toss and chose to bat first in fifth and choosing one-day international against India.

“Looks like a pretty dry wicket, hopefully we can post a big score and defend it,” Finch said.

Australia rolled out two improvements, with Shaun Marsh supplanted by Marcus Stoinis and Nathan Lyon returning into the group to replace Jason Behrendorff.

India likewise rolled out two changes, with K.L. Rahul and Yuzvendra Chahal clearing a path for Mohammed Shami and Ravindra Jadeja.

India captain Virat Kohli said he would have batted first in the event that he had won the toss.

“Hopefully it doesn’t break down so much. Hopefully there’s dew later,” Kohli said. “This is a knockout game for us. Everyone is pumped up.”

India won the initial two ODIs in Hyderabad and Nagpur yet Australia tied the series with progressive successes in Ranchi and Mohali.
