Cricket: Australia stun England to snatch final ODI win

Australia pulled off a stunning five-run victory over England in the fifth and final ODI at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday to sweep the series 4-1. England were bowled out on the fourth ball of the final over as the hosts fought back from what had looked like a losing position for most of the game. The visitors had restricted Australia to 217 for nine wickets with a tight bowling display, but ended up all out for 212 in 49.4 overs. Both sides found batting difficult on a day during which the bowlers were well on top on a slow drop-in pitch.

Cricket: England bat first against Australia

England captain Alastair Cook won the toss and decided to bat in the third one day international against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Sunday. England need to win to keep the series alive after losing the first two ODIs in Melbourne on Sunday and Brisbane on Friday, a seventh consecutive loss to the Australians on a catastrophic tour. They may be relieved that Ashes destroyer Mitchell Johnson is replaced by James Pattinson who is coming back after long-term injury.
