Australian team today won the toss and elected to bat first against India in the fisth and the final one day match at Nagpur.
After getting their first win of the series, Australia have managed to take a sigh of relief and will be looking forward to keep the winning momentum going in the T20 series.
Australia (Playing XI): David Warner, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Steven Smith(c), Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade(w), James Faulkner, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa
India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli(c), Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni(w), Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav
Kohli: All we need to do is get the processes right. We’ve done really well in the series, capitalizing in the first three games in the series and coming back hard. In the last game I thought we played a good game of cricket but I thought Australia did better. Incentives are plenty, every time we step onto the field, we get an opportunity to do well. We need to focus on every game and come back hard. The pitch looks very hard, we would’ve batted first as well but it shouldn’t change much through the game. It is a relaid surface so there shouldn’t be much of wear and tear. The last time we played here we chased down 350, so happy memories of the ground for us. Three changes – Umesh, Shami and Chahal are out Bhuvneshwar, Bumrah and Kuldeep are in.
Smith: We are going to have a bat. It looks pretty dry, hopefully it would slow on as the game goes by and we can post a good total. It was nice to win the last one, I thought we batted pretty well to get 300 on the board; we’d like to replicate that today and get a big one. We have one change, Kane Richardson is sick and James Faulkner comes back in.
