England won by 57 runs | Australia Vs England Live Score, 4th ODI

Can England end the Australian sojourn on a high with a win at Adelaide or will the new-look Aussie side bounce back to foil their plans. Cheers for your company. Do join us for the final ODI day after tomorrow. Adios!
With the cushion of plenty of runs on the board, the English bowlers collectively redicovered their rhythm to bundle out Australia for 259 to claim a comfortable 57-run triumph at the WACA. Aaron Finch top scored for Australia with a breaktaking ton. But with no support from the other end, his knock was pushed into the shade as Australia came up short.
Batting first, England enjoyed a bumper start thanks to Cook and Bell, who were not shy of playing their shots. Ben Stokes, coming in at one drop, butressed his credentials again with a brisk 70 before passing over the baton to Jos Buttler. The Buttler blitz powered the visitors past the 300-mark.
Ben Stokes: 'Yeah it was a team performance. Cook and Bell started it, Morgan and Jos got us to 300. I do love the challnege in every game. I am enjoying at this moment of time. Well it is useful for the the World Cup preparations as we have an opportunity to get used to the conditions here.'
Ben Stokes is the Man of the Match for his fluent 70 followed by 4-39 with the ball.
Cook: 'It has been a while since we had this feeling, there were a couple of dropped catches at the end which made us wait. We know we can play well, we have not been able to access it well. We are not such a bad side. A 100 and a 6-fer in Tests, a 70 here, Stokes competes every single ball. He has learnt from the experience. Chris Jordan has had a tough start, the first few overs he did not bowl well. Then he came back. 3-2 will sound a lot better than 4-1.'
George Bailey: 'We were outplayed today. I certainly think there was plenty in the wicket. We bowled too many wides. At one stage it seemed as if England would cross 350. Ideally, you would want the same team playing each game. Yeah, Faulkner was bit of rusty. He is learning every game, he is getting used to it. Yes, Ben Stokes has gone from strength to strength.'
So, England have finally broken their 8-match winless streak in Australia. They will be relieved to erase the ignominy of another whitewash that loomed large. Presentation to follow shortly.
