Nagpur: Australia captain Ricky Ponting won the toss and elected to bat in the sixth one-day international against India on Sunday.

In-form Australian opener Matthew Hayden missed the match after injuring his hip in the last game in Baroda.

World champions Australia lead the seven-match series 3-1 after the opening game was washed out. The last match will be played in Mumbai on Wednesday.

Brad Haddin, who scored fifties in both matches he has played in the series, replaced Hayden in the only change made by Australian.

India, still hoping to share the series, also made one change, bringing back Shanthakumaran Sreesanth for left-armer Rudra Pratap Singh.

Teams:

Australia: Adam Gilchrist(W), Matthew Hayden, Ricky Ponting(C), Michael Clarke, Bradley Hodge, Andrew Symonds, Brad Hogg, James Hopes, Brett Lee, Nathan Bracken, Mitchell Johnson, Brad Haddin, Adam Voges, Ben Hilfenhaus, Stuart Clark.

India: Saurav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Yuvraj Singh, Robin Uthappa, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Irfan Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Murali Kartik, Zaheer Khan, Rudra Pratap Singh, Gautam Gambhir, Dinesh Karthik, Piyush Chawla, Ramesh Powar, S Sreesanth, Rohit Sharma.
