England have finally managed to defeat Australia for the first time on this tour with a 57-run win in the fourth One-Day International at Perth. Chasing a total of 316 set by England, Australia were bowled out for 259 runs despite a century by Aaron Finch (108).

 

Before this game England were desperate to avert an embarrassing record of losing their 10th successive match which they did in 1993 and 2001.

 

When Australia started their innings, the defeat looked inevitable for England with yet another Finch’s explosive innings in the waiting. The opener smashed the England bowlers but the difference his time was the lack of partnerships.

 

Shaun Marsh who was included for this match did give a good start but was dismissed for 15 by Tim Bresnan. From thereon, Matthew Wade and Finch managed to stitch the only significant partnership of the match of 64 runs. From thereon, England managed to strike at regular intervals.

 

Earlier, England started off solidly after being put in to bat and scored at a brisk rate with openers Alastair Cook (44) and Ian Bell (55) sharing a 87 run opening stand. England’s new No 3  Ben Stokes scored an impressive 70 to take care of the middle overs. However, the big boost was provided by a 43-ball 71 including six boundaries and four sixes.

 

With this defeat, Australia’s brief stay at the top of the ODI rankings came to an end and India are back on top of the table.

 

Brief scores:

 

England 316 for 8 in 50 overs (Alastair Cook 44, Ian Bell 55, Ben Stokes 70, Jos Buttler 71; James Faulkner 4 for 67) beat Australia 259 in 47.4 overs (Aaron Finch 108; Ben Stokes 4 for 39) by 57 runs.
