Australia have won the toss and elected to bat first in the fifth One-Day International (ODI) against England in Adelaide on January 26, 2014. Australia have already gained an unassailable 3-1 lead in the five-match ODI series.

England had won the fourth ODI in Perth by 57 runs to stop a run of nine straight defeats in international cricket. Australia had won the first three ODIs of the series to clinch the series. They had earlier won the Ashes 5-0.

Michael Clarke, who sat out of the fourth ODI, has returned to captain Australia in the final ODI. This is also Australia Day and the home team would be looking to finish off the series with a win.

Australia make four changes from the fourth ODI. Dan Christian, Mitchell Johnson, James Pattinson and Steven Smith have been left out and replaced by Clarke, Shane Watson, Xavier Doherty and Clint McKay.

England make only one change as Joe Root comes in for Gary Balance.

Teams:

Australia: Shaun Marsh, Aaron Finch, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke (c), George Bailey, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade (wk), James Faulkner, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Xavier Doherty, Clint McKay.

England: Alastair Cook (c), Ian Bell, Ben Stokes, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Ravi Bopara, Jos Buttler (wk), Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Chris Jordan, James Tredwell.
