Australian skipper Aaron Finch invited Virat Kohli-led India to field first after winning the toss in the fifth and last One Day International (ODIs) match of five-match series on Wednesday, 13th March.
The fifth ODI between India and Australia is being played at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi. The ongoing five-match series is currently tied at 2-2.
After winning the toss, 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.”
Aaron Finch said: “Batting first. 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. Shaun Marsh misses out for Stoinis, Lyon comes in for Behrendorrf.”
