England sweep Australia aside

England completed a 4-0 victory in the NatWest Series with Australia after cruising to a seven-wicket Duckworth-Lewis victory in the final one-day international at Old Trafford today.

Skipper Alastair Cook (58) and Ravi Bopara (52 not out) sealed the win with a third-wicket stand of 92 which helped the hosts chase down a revised target of 138 with 11 balls to spare. Rain during the day meant the contest was reduced to 32 overs each, with a further weather delay chopping three more overs off England’s innings.

Australia had been put into bat in the overcast conditions but could only muster 145-7, a total that would have been even weaker had George Bailey not blasted an unbeaten 46 at the death. (Sky)†
