India will be desperate for win against Australia in the sixth One-Day International match at Nagpur on Wednesday.

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to field first.

Australia are ahead with a 2-1 lead in the seven-match series after the successive wash-outs of the fourth and fifth ODIs in Ranchi and Cuttack on October 23 and 26.

The onus is on India, whose under-performing players, need to pull up their socks and fire in unison to upset the apple cart of the Australians who came with the record of winning two seven-game series in the past.

The hosts have no option but to win the remaing two matches to clinch the series and any lapses in tomorrow’s game could turn out to be disastrous for the team.

Teams:

India (probable): Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shami Ahmed, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jaidev Unadkat.

Australia (probable): Aaron Finch, Phil Hughes, Shane Watson, George Bailey (c), Glenn Maxwell, Adam Voges, Brad Haddin (wk), James Faulkner, Mitchell Johnson, Clint McKay, Xavier Doherty.
