12:15 PM IST: Hello and welcome to live coverage of the fourth ODI between India and Australia.
With the series in their pocket, India will have an extra spring in their step with four frontline players playing a ‘home’ game at Bangalore. Skipper Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Kedar Jadhav and Yuzvendra Chahal know every blade of grass at Chinnaswamy, having represented Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.
Australia are gasping for breath in a series where their batting has let them down badly. Struggling for form, David Warner will at least try to live up to his reputation in a milestone game. The dynamite of an opener has scored 4,093 runs at an average of 44 and strike rate of 96.5 so far. A good knock from Warner is more than overdue.
