England face Australia in the fourth One Day International (ODI) of the five match series at Cardiff on Saturday. The hosts will be without their skipper Alastair Cook, who has been rested for the ongoing ODI series after the Three Lions enjoyed a good run during the 2013 Investec Ashes series, where they swept to a 3-0 win over Michael Clarke's men.

The first ODI at Leeds saw the match being abandoned without a ball bowled. Australia took the lead after the second match at Manchester as Clarke's century made sure his side put on a total of 315 on board.

England failed to chase their target, as they were bowled out for 227, resulting in a 88 runs defeat in the second ODI. Kevin Pietersen (60), Eoin Morgan (54) and Jose Butler (75) contributed most part of the runs scored in Manchester as the rest of the Three Lions' batsmen failed to fire with the bat.

The tie at Edgbaston saw the same result as that of the Leeds fixture as the third ODI was called off, with bad weather forcing the match being abandoned. Australia lead 1-0 in the five match series and a victory at Cardiff could see them seal the ODI series victory against the English side.

England will be hoping to make a comeback in the series as the weather is favouring for a full game to be played at Cardiff on Saturday. A victory for the hosts could see them level the series, with the final game being the decider between the two sides.
