SKIPPER Aaron Finch has decided to let loose his fast men early as the Aussies look wrap up the short ODI series against South Africa in Hobart.

Chris Lynn looks set to open the batting for Australia in Hobart but the six-hitting machine will have to wait to chase after South Africa were sent in by Aaron Finch for the series decider.

Australia have chosen to bowl first as they chase their first series victory since last summer’s Ashes, and have stuck with the same XI that did the job in the second ODI against the Proteas in Adelaide.

However, captain Finch has flagged some shifts to the batting order as Australia desperately search for rhythm and the formula to bat through their full 50 overs.
