Dharamsala, Jan 27: England captain Alastair Cook won the toss and asked India to bat first in the fifth and last One-Dayer here at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium on Sunday.
Contrary to expectations of giving a chance to Cheteshwar Pujara and legspinner Amit Mishra, who have not had a game in the five-match series, skipper Dhoni decided to stick to his winning combination.
England made one change, bringing in Chris Oakes in place of erratic fast bowler Jade Dernbach.
