Australia win toss, bowl against West Indies in fourth ODI
Australia won the toss and chose to bowl in their fourth one-day international against the West Indies here on Thursday. The five-match series is currently tied at one win apiece after the first three matches in St Vincent. Australia won the first ODI by 64 runs before West Indies won by five wickets in a rain-affected second match on Sunday.
That win ended the West Indies’ miserable run of 15 defeats in 16 one-dayers against Australia. The third ODI ended in a thrilling tie.
Australia made two changes to their team, bringing in batsman Peter Forrest and fast bowler Ben Hilfenhaus, who will play his first game on tour, for all-rounder Daniel Christian and offspinner Nathan Lyon.
West Indies called up fit-again Adrian Barath in place of Kieran Powell in their sole change.
Opener Jonhson Charles, only the second Saint Lucia cricketer to be selected for the West Indies, will plays his first international on home soil.
West Indies: Johnson Charles, Adrian Barath, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Carlton Baugh (wkt), Darren Sammy (capt), Sunil Narine, Kemar Roach.
Australia: Shane Watson (capt), David Warner, Matthew Wade (wkt), George Bailey, Michael Hussey, David Hussey, Peter Forrest, Clint McKay, Xavier Doherty, Brett Lee, Ben Hilfenhaus
