Australian captain Steve Smith won the toss and chose to bat in the fourth one-day international against India at Manuka Oval in Canberra on Wednesday.

India made just one change, resting paceman Barinder Sran and bringing in fellow fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Australia lead the five-match series 3-0 after wins in Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne.
