Commonwealth Bank Series, 5th Match: India v Sri Lanka at Adelaide, Feb 14, 2012

Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene has won the toss and decided to bat in Game Five of the Commonwealth Bank Series at Adelaide Oval.

The decision comes as no surprise given the hot, sunny conditions prevailing. With an expected maximum temperature of 35 degrees, the Sri Lankans will look to bat India out of the game by setting up a huge target.

Today Dhoni will play his 200th ODI for the Indians, who also made two changes to their line-up.

Experienced all-rounder Irfan Pathan will be making his first appearance of the tour, replacing Zaheer Khan (right calf injury), while Sachin Tendulkar returns after a one-match rest, in place of Virender Sehwag.
