Bengaluru, Jan 19 (IANS) Australia skipper Aaron Finch won the toss and opted to bat against India in the third and final ODI of the rubber at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, here on Sunday.

Speaking at the toss, Finch said: “Looks like a good wicket. If we had gone into the back overs three down, we could have chased it down. Josh Hazlewood in for Kane Richardson.”
