Cook wins toss, asks India to bat


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.

The teams:

India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain-wicketkeeper), Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, R. Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Shami Ahmed, Rohit Sharma.

England: Alastair Cook (captain), Ian Bell, Kevin Pietersen, Eoin Morgan, Craig Kieswetter, Samit Patel, Jos Buttler (wicketkeeper), Chris Woakes , James Tredwell, Tim Bresnan, Steven Finn.

Umpires: Steve Davis (Australia) and Sudhir Asnani.

TV umpire: C. Shamshuddin.

Match Referee: Andy Pycroft (Zimbabwe).
