India and Australia clash in the series-deciding match of their seven-match One-Day International series at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Saturday.
Australia captain George Bailey won the toss and elected to field first.
India will have to depend on their batting firepower as they seek to clinch the One-Day International (ODI) series against an equally-determined Australia.
After two successive washouts in Ranchi and Cuttak, India bounced back to level the series 2-2 in Nagpur with their top-order producing a superlative show, chasing down a mammoth 351-run target.
The incredible run chase brought back memories of India’s magnificent victory in Jaipur when they chased a stiff target of 360, achieving the second highest successful run chase ever in ODI history.
India: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, R Vinay Kumar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shami Ahmed.
Australia: Phil Hughes, Aaron Finch, Shane Watson, George Bailey (c), Adam Voges, Glenn Maxwell, Brad Haddin (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, James Faulkner, Clint McKay, Xavier Doherty.
