Australia won the toss and decided to bat against India in the first one-day international at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Sunday.
Australia captain George Bailey said, “We will bat first. There is a little bit more grass on this one than we normally see in Pune.
“It is a big game and it is very important to start the series on a positive note. Maxwell is in for Clarke.”
India captain MS Dhoni siad, “We were looking to bowl first because of the dew factor. We just need to keep our heads calm and build some partnerships.
“The bowling just needs to improve a bit but on the whole, we have done well. We are looking like a very good fielding side in the world now. That crucial run-out in the middle could turn things around.
“We are going in with an unchanged squad that played the T20 game.”
Australia (Playing XI): Aaron Finch, Phillip Hughes, Shane Watson, George Bailey(c), Adam Voges, Glenn Maxwell, Brad Haddin(w), James Faulkner, Mitchell Johnson, Clint McKay, Xavier Doherty.
India (Playing XI): Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni(w/c), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Vinay Kumar, Ishant Sharma.
