The match is scheduled to start at 3:20 am GMT. Live coverage will be available on Sky Sports 2 and Sky Sports 2 HD.


Australia failed to secure a second straight whitewash over England by losing the fourth ODI, giving the England team a glimmer of hope, on which they can rest and forget the turbulent times they had to suffer over the past couple of months.

The visitors had lost the five match test series to Australia in ignominious fashion, suffering a whitewash and carried their form onto the ODI series, where they lost the first three games on the trot.

The Aussies need to get their chins up ahead of this fixture, with the Perth test highlighting their lack in focus after what has been a transforming series for the hosts. Coach Daren Lehmann needs to get them back on track and hope that they are able to perform in the same bracket as they have done over the series and relegate England to their ninth straight defeat in 10 competitive games in all formats.

Meanwhile, captain Alastair Cook will be breathing a sigh of relief after their win. This is the first time that England have been able to get the better of the hosts and will look to end the series on a high after what has been an abysmal display of cricket by the previous holders of the Ashes.

The win was down to their bowlers, especially Ben Stokes, who took four wickets at an economy rate of four to stunt the Australian batsmen while chasing a steep total of 317 to win. Stokes was also the second highest run corer for England, scoring 70 valuable runs to give Cook some breathing space before returning to England.
