Bangalore - Australia won the toss and chose to bowl first against India, in the seventh and final one-day international, at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Saturday.
With the series deadlocked at 2-2, the victors today will win the seven-match series.
The hosts, who have now become the only side to chase down a target of 350 or more on two occasions after they successfully chased 350 in Nagpur, are looking to win their first bilateral series proper, against the Aussies since 1996.
The visitors have brought in Nathan Coulter-Nile for Mitchell Johnson who recently flew home. While India have Vinay Kumar in place of Amit Mishra.
This could be yet another run-fest with the shorter-than-normal boundaries at this venue and as reported locally a batting-friendly pitch.Teams:
