Hobart, Australia: Australia captain Michael Clarke won the toss and sent Scotland in to bat in their final Pool A match of the Cricket World Cup at Bellerive Oval on Saturday.

Paceman Pat Cummins replaces spinner Xavier Doherty in the only change to Australia's starting lineup after selectors opted for an all-seam bowling attack.

Iain Wardlaw returns to the Scotland XI in place of fellow seamer Alasdair Evans in the only change to Preston Mommsen's side.

Australia has already qualified for the quarterfinals, while Scotland comes into the match on a 13-match losing streak at three winless World Cup tournaments.

The forecast calls for a chance of rain in Hobart later Saturday.
