Australia's hopes of a 5-0 series whitewash were hit when they made a terrible start to their final one-day international against the West Indies at the MCG.

After the home side lost the toss and were put in, they saw stand-in skipper Shane Watson chop on the first ball of the innings from Tino Best.

Then in the third over Aaron Finch pulled Best straight down fine leg's throat, leaving the score on 2-2.

Australia have won all four games so far in the series.

Watson is captaining the side in place of Michael Clarke, who has a sore hamstring and drops out for Shaun Marsh.

Brad Haddin and Xavier Doherty have also come into the side for Matthew Wade and Glenn Maxwell, who are in India for the upcoming Test series.

West Indian star Chris Gayle failed a fitness test and will miss again with a side muscle injury.

The tourists brought in Kemar Roach for Andre Russell.

Nathan Coulter-Nile and Jason Holder are the 12th men.
