Having lost the toss and been sent in to bat on what initially was a sluggish MCG pitch and in rain-tainted conditions, the home side limped to 230 off 48.4 overs in a series which had been locked on one win apiece.

India (Possible XI): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), MS Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami. Dhoni will keep strike as he pushes a single off the back foot off the final ball. "We're ready to go for the series decider".

Following half-centuries in Sydney and Adelaide, Dhoni guided India to victory in Melbourne with an unbeaten 87.

Australia have already announced their changes for the third and final match in the series, with Adam Zampa coming in to replace Nathan Lyon.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami also did a lot of damage.

Meanwhile, Cricket Australia announced two changes to their squad for the last ODI.

A victory for Australia at the MCG on Friday would hand them their first series win in nearly two years, having won just four of their past 23 One-day Internationals.

Credit is also due to Kedar Jadhav who was playing his first ODI of the series.

'In the first match, I felt he was a little rusty, he was not being able to hit the ball where he wanted to and that can happen to anyone, ' Tendulkar said. He looked in great form as he found the gaps easily hitting 11 boundaries and three sixes.
