India and Australia will face each other in the fifth ODI of the series in Nagpur on Sunday. Though, the final match of the series will have no bearing on the result of the series, there will be no dearth of motivation for both sides as they take the field. While Australia would love to reduce the margin of loss in the series, India need to win the match to once again take them to the top spot in the ICC ODI rankings.

India had risen to number one after winning the third ODI of the series but then slipped to number two after losing the fourth match.

However, this up-down race for the No. 1 spot is bound to continue for some time as South Africa, the number one team in the rankings, are soon slated to play three ODI games against Bangladesh.

Even if India get to number one after winning in Nagpur, South Africa will have their chance to reclaim the numero uno spot.

India have been dominant in the series against Australia and will go in as favourites in the final match. But Australia have shown that they can match India toe to toe if they are playing at their best. So one cannot count them out.

The toss will play a big part in the fifth ODI and the team that bats first may have the advantage.
