Speaking after the toss, Australian skipper Aaron Finch said, "We expect it to spin a bit and hopefully when the lights come on, it might play better. We didn't play our best in the last game, obviously Dhoni and Jadhav played well to get them across the line. A bit more improvement in the batting and bowling should help. Two changes - Marsh is back and so is Nathan Lyon. We're playing the two spinners. Turner and Behrendorff missing out.

Meanwhile, Indian skipper Virat Kohli got what he wanted and that is batting first. 

"We wanted to bat first, pretty much a no-brainer. Not much dew in the evening and it's a dry surface. Not typical of the kind of pitches you get here, doesn't look like it will bounce much. We expect it to deteriorate further as the game progresses. We have the same team. We spoke about the middle order coming through when the top three doesn't click, so we need such games. Guys are looking for opportunities. It was a good performance for us, hopefully we can keep it going."
