An aggressive 43-ball 71 from Jos Buttler helped England post 316 for eight against Australia in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) Perth on Friday.  England who are in search of their elusive win in this tour finally managed to put up a solid performance with the top order firing and boosted by Buttler’ half-century towards the end of the innings.

 

Once again, Australia, led by Geroge Bailey put England in to bat. While Australia made wholesale changes to their playing XI having won the series, England went in with an unchanged team from the third ODI.

 

Alastair Cook, who has had a disastrous tour so far started off steadily with Ian Bell. The opening pair added 87 in just 12 overs to give England a perfect foundation to progress in the middle overs. The breakthrough came when Cook was bowled by Glenn Maxwell for 44. It was yet another good start gone begging for the England skipper. Meanwhile, Bell completed his half-century.

 

Ben Stokes, whose promotion to No 3 had drawn criticism, played a matured innings to hold the innings together. Along with Gary Balance, the duo kept the scoreboard moving. The slide started in the 34th over when Ballance was dismissed for 18.

 

Soon Stokes was also on his way back after a well-compiled 70 from 84 balls including six boundaries and a six. But the timing of his dismissal was crucial for England. Soon they were 216 for five with Ravi Bopara out for three.

 

Along with Eoin Morgan, Buttler then took charge of the innings and went after the England bowlers. He upped the ante by smashing the Aussie bowlers all around. Buttler hit four sixes and six boundaries in his innings to power England to a formidable total.

 

If England lose this, it will be their 10th consecutive loss across all formats, equalling their record losing streaks in 1993 and 2001.

 

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) vs Australia.
