When and where:
After a crushing 242 runs defeat in the third ODI against the host-England, nothing is left for Australia in the series now. Apart from registering wins in the practice games, Australia has looked nowhere in the three contests so far. England has gained an unassailable lead of 3-0 and with the current form, they would be looking for a clean sweep now.
Both the teams will reload tomorrow (June 21) at Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street after England ended up with a record-breaking total of 481 for 6 and 242 runs win on Tuesday. The 4th ODI will begin at 06:30 PM IST/02:00 PM Local.
Australia is surely missing the experience in pace bowling attack. Andrew Tye and Jhye Richardson gave away 192 runs in their combined 19 over. With the latest loss, Australia has now lost 16 of the last 18 ODIs. So, let’s see how they deal with their biggest nightmare they faced in the last encounter!
Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street has proved friendly for the bowlers in the last few encounters. Average total in the first inning at this venue is 238. So, the team batting first is expected to post a total of 260-280. The flip of the coin will also play a crucial role here as in a total of 15 ODIs, 8 matches have been won by the chasing side while the defending side has won only 5 encounters here.

England has named two new inclusions in the pace attack. Surrey’s Sam Curran and Somerset’s Craig Overton has been included in the squad for the last two encounters against Australia. One of either L Plunkett or D Willey can get some rest.
Australia is left with not many options. While the first-choice pace attack is suffering from injuries, B Stanlake, and A Tye will have to face hosts once again. The visitors can think of adding some depth in batting by bringing in Alex Carey.
Liam Plunkett is a doubtful starter.
