Cardiff:

England skipper Alastair Cook won the toss and opted to field first in the final ODI against India, at Cardiff. Just before the match was scheduled to start however, torrential rains lashed the stadium.

While the rain is being regarded as a passing shower, a delay may be in the prospect even as  hosts rest James Anderson and Johnny Bairstow will make his debut. Samit Patel and James Dernbach have also been included in the side.

India have made just one change in the playing XI as Praveen Kumar is replaced by Vinay Kumar.
