Chester-le-Street, England: England continued to dominate in the ongoing series against Australia as they defeated the Kangaroos by 8 wickets in the 4th ODI.

England skipper Alastair Cook won the toss and decided to field first, a decision which worked as pacer Steven Finn dented the Australian innings by picking 4 wickets. At one stage, Australia were reeling at 96/6 after which David Hussey (70 from 73) rescued the innings and helped his side reach a respectable score.

During their chase, England achieved the paltry score with the loss of two wickets. Finn was adjudged the man of the match and with this win, England have taken an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series, with one washed out and one game to play.
