Australia have won the toss and decided to bat first in the fifth and final ODI today.

Speaking after the toss, skipper Aaron Finch said, " Looks like a dry wicket. Hopefully we can get a big score and defend it later. The wicket and the squares have been re-laid over the last few years, so we can't look into the numbers much."

"Not a lot of international cricket here over the last 10 years. It's important to keep the momentum, whenever you get the opportunities with the bat, take it, and take the team across the line. Shaun Marsh misses out for Stoinis, Lyon comes in for Behrendorff."

Meanwhile, Indian skipper Virat Kohli, said, " We have to first restrict them with the ball, and we are the one of the best chasing sides in the world and we have to show that today. In terms of team composition, we know which way we are going. Chahal misses out and Jadeja comes in as an all-rounder, and KL misses out to make way for Shami. An extra bowling option for us, and this, we feel is our most balanced side."
