Australia win toss, elect to bat first against India in final ODI

Rajkot/UNI: Australia won the toss and elected to bat first in the third and final ODI match with the home team aiming for a clean sweep at the Saurashtra Cricket Association here on Wednesday.

India have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series already.

Captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Kuldeep Yadav are back into the side after they were rested for the first two games. Washington Sundar also has been included.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Ishan Kishan missed out for today's match, with the latter being down with a viral fever. In-form Shubman Gill is also not available for selection as the squad has been hit by a viral sickness.

Some players like pacers Mohammed Shami and Shardul Thakur, and all-rounder Hardik Pandya have gone back to their respective homes.

Australia have made five changes with Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell making into the team. Tanveer Sangha is making his debut.

Speaking after the toss, Rohit said the wicket looked dry and would play slightly better under lights. "Anyway we wanted to chase," he said.

India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma(c), Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Prasidh Krishna

Australia (Playing XI): Mitchell Marsh, David Warner, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey(w), Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green, Pat Cummins(c), Mitchell Starc, Tanveer Sangha, Josh Hazlewood
