Watch MS Dhoni in fine touch during net practice ahead of series decider against Australia

Watch MS Dhoni in fine touch during net practice ahead of series decider against Australia

Chahal shares the record with fellow Indian Ajit Agarkar, who claimed the same figures against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2004. Bhuvneshwar, the highest wicket-taker in the series, MS Dhoni, the only man with three fifties in the series and Chahal have given India fresh hope months ahead of the World Cup.

India won the toss and opted to bowl in the third and final one-day global against Australia in Melbourne on Friday. Under Shastri's mentorship, Kohli became the first Indian captain in 71 years to win a Test series on Australian soil.

Going into the final ODI, India will be aiming to take the winning momentum and end the ongoing tour Down Under without losing a series.

India bounced back from the 34-run loss in the series opener at Sydney, with another Virat Kohli masterclass century combined with his predecessor Mahendra Singh Dhoni's vintage finish to pull off a 6-wicket win at Adelaide. From comfortable 100 for 2, Australia had lost both set batsmen for the addition of just one run to their total.

Adam Zampa's wicket in the following over gave him his career-best haul, while Shami picked up his second in Billy Stanlake to wrap up the formalities eight balls early. Kuldeep Yadav has been rested with legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal taking his place while Kedar Jadhav replaces Ambati Rayudu.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying expressed " strong dissatisfaction" with that. His original sentence was 15 years.

Australia (Final XI): Alex Carey (wk), Aaron Finch (c), Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa, Peter Siddle, Jhye Richardson and Billy Stanlake.

Light morning drizzle meant the toss, first, and subsequently the start of play was delayed by ten minutes each and then halted for another 15 minutes two balls into Australia's innings.

Credit is also due to Kedar Jadhav who was playing his first ODI of the series.

"Of course, he is very happy after becoming a father and I'm sure he'll be a great father", Dhawan said.

Shikhar Dhawan, who is in Australia to be a part of series Down Under, has sent out a message for his fellow teammate and new daddy, Rohit Sharma. Catch the live action 7:00 AM IST onwards.
