Finch will now have a different opening partner and Marnus Labuschagne could be an option to open the innings. Cameron Green may be also available again after missing the second match due to cramps. Stonis has played a key role for the Australian squad with his all-round skills. He has made 308 runs in 19 ODI innings at 17.11. Also, the team will need him to be fit for the T20 World Cup. 

Stonis has been the second injury in the last couple of weeks for the team after Mitchell Marsh nursed a minor ankle injury. Marsh has been a regular no.3 batter for Australia and also provides a handy pace-bowling option.
