England proved their existence in the ongoing ODI series by winning the fourth one by a good margin of 57 runs against Australia at Perth. The visitors anticipate winning the last game with the same teamwork whereas the hosts will try hard to finish the series on a high note by folding the series at 4-1.
The Kangaroos will be strengthened once Michael Clarke gets back to lead the squad and he will do his best to make good impression with the bat. Aaron Finch has blasted two tons in the series, he will be their key batsman and James Faulkner can be lethal at the lower order.
The Englishmen will look towards their skipper, Alastair Cook, to provide them a rising start with a big knock. Eoin Morgan has scored most of the runs in four games whereas Ian Bell once again will play a dominant role.
