That is it from this game! Another dominating performance from England and a whitewash is surely on the cards. Australia on the other hand, have tried everything possible but still have not found the winning formula. Will they avoid a whitewash or will England continue their domination? We will find out in the 5th ODI on the 24th at 1100 local (1000 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye.
Man of the Match, Jason Roy, says he is enjoying his time in this series. He feels he is just focused on doing his job for his team. He mentions he is trying to pace his innings and set a good platform for the batters coming in.
England skipper, Eoin Morgan, feels they played well here. Admits they struggled to take wickets but the run rate was always in check. Mentions a lot depends on conditions and this one was a good wicket to bat on. Adds further at the half way time they were happy with the target. Credits Overton for the way he bowled. Ends by saying a new challenge awaits at Manchester and he hopes to continue the good show over there.
Australian skipper, Tim Paine, says they were at least 30 or 40 short after the platform they got courtesy Finch and Marsh. He feels the dropped catch was the turning point. He adds further they were poor with the ball up front. Ends by saying they have come here with an inexperienced side against the best in the world and hopes they learn a lot from the tour.
After Australia scored 310, courtesy Finch and Marsh's ton, one would have thought they had a real chance of winning. But once again their bowlers were below par. Their pacers were guilty of either bowling too wide, full or short, had high economy rates and only Billy Stanlake managed to pick a wicket. Yes, Paine did drop the catch of Hales but I do not think that would have made a difference. Agar was the pick of the bowlers for them who finished with figures of 8-0-48-2 but lacked support from the other end.
A mockery is what England have made of this run chase. Yes, you have read it right, 311 has been chased down without breaking a sweat. Chasing a big total on a wicket which was slightly two-paced, the English openers once again milked the Australian bowling. Their stand was worth 174 with Jason Roy scoring yet another magnificent ton which came up of just 81 balls. Jonny Bairstow too, continued his good form but could not get his century. The hosts did lose both the openers in quick succession but the job was done by them. They had the game in their pocket and the batters who then walked out ensured there were no great hiccups. Buttler's meaty blows and his fifty was the icing on the cake to round what was another brilliant English performance with the bat.

Michael Neser To Jos Buttler
FOUR! What a way to end the match. Full around off and Buttler stays inside the line and hits it through the line. The sound off the ball meeting the bat will tell you that the ball has raced away to the cover fence. ENGLAND WIN BY 6 WICKETS WITH 32 BALLS TO SPARE.

Michael Neser To Jos Buttler
Full ball on the leg stump, Jos looks to hit down the ground but doesn't get the connection. The ball hangs in the air and the fielder at long on comes in to take the catch and throw it back. Two runs are taken meanwhile. The scores are level and Jos Buttler has reached his half century as well.

Michael Neser To Jos Buttler
No Ball and a SIX! HAAH! This one never touched the ground. Neser looks to bowl a back of the hand slower ball but gets it horribly wrong. It reaches Buttler at the perfect height and he swings his blade like a sword to hit it way behind the mid-wicket fence. Just three needed now with free hit coming up next.
