Australia have won the toss and elected to bowl in the fourth One-Day International (ODI)at Perth against England on Friday. If England lose this match, it will be their 10th consecutive loss across all formats, equalling their record losing streaks in 1993 and 2001.
Australia had declared their team on Thursday. On expected lines, the team management decided to rest a few players and George Bailey will be leading the side in the absence of Michael Clarke. Meanwhile, England have opted to field an unchanged playing XI.
It has been a disastrous tour for England who are still in search of that elusive win. With the ODI series gone 0-3, the visitors will have nothing to lose.
Australia: George Bailey (c), Mitchell Johnson, Aaron Finch, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade (wk), Steven Smith, Nathan Coulter-Nile, James Pattinson, James Faulkner, Daniel Christian.
England: Alastair Cook (c), Ian Bell, Ben Stokes, Gary Ballance, Eoin Morgan, Ravi Bopara, Jos Buttler (wk), Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Chris Jordan, James Tredwell
