India win toss, bowl in MCG ODI decider

10YearChallenge After ICC's tribute BCCI lauds 'captain cool' MS Dhoni's might

India has won the toss and elected to field. Kuldeep Yadav has been rested with legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal taking his place while Kedar Jadhav replaces Ambati Rayudu. Bhuvneshwar, the highest wicket-taker in the series, MS Dhoni, the only man with three fifties in the series and Chahal have given India fresh hope months ahead of the World Cup. Under Shastri's mentorship, Kohli became the first Indian captain in 71 years to win a Test series on Australian soil. Rohit had left the Test series midway after his wife Ritika delivered a baby girl on 30 December.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami also did a lot of damage.

The Aussies who declared their final XI have made a couple of changes to their bowling attack. Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh got time to settle in and eased the nerves by laying the foundation of a vital 73-run stand for the third wicket.

A victory for Australia at the MCG on Friday would hand them their first series win in nearly two years, having won just four of their past 23 One-day Internationals. Both pacers picked up two wickets apeice.

Where maintaining a disciplined line with his off-breaks has been the key to Lyon becoming Australia's greatest finger spinner, and arguably the world's best spinner, that approach does not work in the ODI arena, where variety is required. His ability to swing the ball both ways troubled the batsmen as they struggled to take runs off him.

"We took it down to the wire, we batted really well in the first two innings, probably should have set the target a bit lower on this pitch", he said. He looked in great form as he found the gaps easily hitting 11 boundaries and three sixes.

Shikhar Dhawan, who is in Australia to be a part of series Down Under, has sent out a message for his fellow teammate and new daddy, Rohit Sharma.

Other popular bets can be checked on Oddschecker. Jhye Richardson dismissed Virat Kohli for the third time in the series - on Friday, Kohli was furious after he pushed at a delivery which was far outside the off-stump.
