Shimron Hetymer returns for the home side in place of Jason Mohammed
West Indies won the toss and decided to bat against Australia
Dan Christian will play his first ODI in more than seven years – and his first List A game in four – as one of three changes for Australia in the deciding match against West Indies
Christian comes in for the injured Ben McDermott who hurt his ankle colliding with a boundary board during the second match. Moises Henriques is slated to open the batting alongside Josh Philippe.
Left-arm spinner Ashton Agar, who has recovered from a hamstring injury, is also recalled to bolster the spin attack while Josh Hazlewood returns. Riley Meredith and Wes Agar miss out.
West Indies, who opted to bat first on a used surface, have made one change with Shimron Hetmyer replacing Jason Mohammed. They have not beaten Australia in a bilateral ODI series since 1995.
