Australia have been forced into making further changes to their One-Day International squad ahead of Sunday's fifth and final match against the West Indies in Melbourne.

Captain Michael Clarke is set to miss the game as a precautionary measure with a stiff right hamstring and Shaun Marsh replaces him in the squad.

Shane Watson, who himself only returned from a lengthy injury to play in the previous two games, will captain the side for the ninth time.

Marsh has played 36 ODIs, scoring 1,274 runs with two centuries and eight half-centuries since making his debut in 2008.

Australia lead the series 4-0 following two wins in Perth and then one apiece in Canberra and Sydney.
