Toss and Teams: Hosts West Indies have won the toss and asked Australia to bat first in the fifth and final ODI at the Beausejour Stadium in Gros Islet, St Lucia. Sammy’s decision to bat second could be based on the weather forecast which is for showers!
It’s a must win game for the Aussies as they are trailing by 1-2 in this 5-ODI Digicel Series! West Indies are one victory away from beating Australia in an ODI series after a long gap of 17 years! Both the teams have gone in with the same XI that figured in the 4th ODI at this same ground.
West Indies: J Charles, DM Bravo, MN Samuels, DJ Bravo, KA Pollard, AD Russell, CS Baugh (Wicket Keeper), DJG Sammy (Captain), SP Narine, KAJ Roach, AB Barath
Australia: DA Warner, MS Wade (Wicket Keeper), SR Watson (Captain), MEK Hussey, DJ Hussey, PJ Forrest, GJ Bailey, CJ McKay, XJ Doherty, B Lee, BW Hilfenhaus
