LEEDS, England (AP) — India has won the toss and will bowl first against England in the fifth and final one-day international at Headingley as it looks to complete a 4-0 win in the series.

On a three-match winning run, the Indians bring in Umesh Yadav for fellow bowler Dhawal Kulkarni in their only change.

England made two alterations to the team that was thrashed by nine wickets at Edgbaston on Tuesday, with James Tredwell and Ben Stokes in for Harry Gurney and Gary Ballance. Moeen Ali is set to bat at No. 3.

India, the world champion in the 50-over format, has won every playable match in the series, with the first ODI washed out without a ball being bowled.



England: Alastair Cook, Alex Hales, Moeen Ali, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, James Tredwell, Steven Finn, James Anderson.

India: Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Shami, Umesh Yadav.
