Dhoni: 'We are going in with the same team. We were looking to bowl first because of the dew factor. But it is good that the bowlers will get some exposure today. The pitch has a decent grass cover. Usually it is a good batting track but at the same time there will be something for the quicks. It is difficult for the bowlers with 5 fielders in the ring. Especially the spinners, they try to bowl flat and flat and of course the T20 influence is always there.'
Bailey: '3 from 3 (on winning the toss), we are having a bowl today. It is a very beautiful wicket. The dew can come in late, we've played some good cricket. Happy with where we are. We are going with the same XI. It is a hard ground to defend.'
Australia have won the toss and have opted to field
The Indian batsmen chased down a mammoth target of 360 with 39 balls to spare in the last ODI. First, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan put on a record 176-run opening stand which is the highest for India against Australia. Then, the former was joined by Virat Kohli who didn't put a foot wrong. He also went on to register the fastest ODI hundred by an Indian in just 52 balls eclipsing Virender Sehwag's 60-ball ton against New Zealand. In the end, the three youngsters not only helped India square the 7-match ODI series, but also ensured that India recorded the second highest run chase in the history of ODIs.
