PERTH: Australia won the toss and chose to bat against England in the seventh and final one-day international at the WACA Ground in Perth on Sunday.

Australia already have an unbeatable 5-1 lead in the series.

Both sides made changes for the match, with Australia resting captain Michael Clarke and all-rounder Shane Watson, while paceman Brett Lee was left out with a slight hamstring injury.

Spinner Jason Krejza makes his ODI debut, with Tim Paine brought in as a batsman and Adam Voges recalled.

England lost batsmen Eoin Morgan and Paul Collingwood to injury, with young all-rounder Chris Woakes omitted.

They recalled Steven Davies, who took the gloves from Matt Prior, and Luke Wright, with paceman Liam Plunkett also promoted due to the raft of injuries to English bowlers.
