It took them almost three months, but England finally recorded their first win of their horrific Australian tour in the fourth one-day international against Australia at the WACA Ground on Friday. (Match Scorecard)
After eight successive losses against the home nation in both Tests and one-dayers, the tourists finally had something to celebrate with a 57-run win over Australia, who already held an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five-match ODI series. Up against an understrength Australian side led by George Bailey rather than Michael Clarke, who was rested along with Brad Haddin and David Warner, England made 316 for eight after being sent in to bat on a great batting wicket. In reply Australia made 259 from 47.4 overs.
