Adelaide: Feb 12, 2012

 

Australian captain Michael Clarke has won the toss and asked India to bowl first in the fourth One-Day International match (ODI) of the Commonwealth Bank (CB) ODI series at Adelaide.

 

With a win against the winless Sri Lankans, India are second in the points table. The unbeaten Australians are top of the heap after two successive wins.

 

Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar has been rested in the fourth ODI as Gautam Gambhir gets an opportunity to open the innings with Virender Sehwag.

 

Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin gets an opportunity to play the fourth ODI ahead of lanky spinner Rahul Sharma who cooled his heels in Perth while Ashwin grabbed his chances with both hands and was man of the match for his 3 for 32 and unbeaten 30 runs with the bat.

 

India’s batting line-up will once again have rotation at the top to allow youngsters in the middle order to have a hit in the centre.

 

Teams

 

Australia: David Warner, Mathew Wade (wk), Ricky Ponting, Peter Forrest, Michael Clarke (c), David Hussey, Daniel Christian, Ryan Harris, Mitchell Starc, Clint McKay, Xavier Doherty

 

India: Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, RohitSharma, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravinder Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, R Vinay Kumar, Zaheer Khan, Umesh Yadav
