Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bat against Australia in the third and final one-day international at the Gabba on Sunday. The Sri Lankans, who have already won their first-ever series in Australia with victories in Melbourne and Sydney, made two changes.
Veteran spinner Muttiah Muralitharan was rested for Jeevan Mendis and Dilhara Fernando came in for Nuwan Kulasekera.
Ricky Ponting is rested from the dead rubber and Michael Clarke will lead the Australians, who made a total of three changes after the loss to Sri Lanka on the Duckworth Lewis method in Sydney on Wednesday.
Callum Ferguson takes the place of Ponting, left-arm spinner Xavier Doherty returns at the expense of Nathan Hauritz and Mitchell Starc replaces Peter Siddle.
