Australia won the toss and elected to bat against the West Indies in the fourth match of the DLF Cup cricket tri-series here today.
Michael Hussey will lead the world champions in the absence of regular skipper Ricky Ponting, who was rested for the day-night limited overs clash at the Kinrara Oval.
Also sitting out are Damien Martyn and Glenn McGrath, while Matthew Hayden and Brett Lee will play their first match of the tour.
West Indies brought in Marlon Samuels in place of Fidel Edwards, the only change to the team that beat India on Duckworth-Lewis method in their previous match.
The start has been advanced by an hour from the scheduled time to counter the threat of rains later in the day.
Australia lead the table with seven points while West Indies have five and India two after the first round of round-robin league.
