Australia vs England 2018, 5th ODI - What went wrong for the hosts

Victors Andrew Tye and Tim Paine of Australia leave the field after game four of the one-day international series

He reeled off five sixes, all clubbed in the arc between long-on and long leg, but may be proudest of a classy cover drive off the leg-spin of Adam Zampa.The all-rounder increasingly looks under-sold as a number eight, steering Moeen and Tom Curran to stands of 53 and 60 and the scoreboard to the fringes of respectability.

Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root and Jos Buttler all banked ducks, facing a combined 20 balls for their collective nought.

Tom Curran reflected on a "rollercoaster" experience in Australia after he bagged 5 for 35 to lead England to a stirring 12-run victory in Perth in a contest that seemed to be slipping away from them.

Australia reached the 15-over mark at 73 for three, with recalled opener Head unbeaten on 48 and racing for the finish line.

Marsh, who bowled with the notable economy, also ensured Hales would not go on from his own start by coaxing a top edge from a short ball, and Morgan swiped unsuccessfully at another ball banged into the pitch, taken by Stoinis running in from the deep point.

Some tighter bowling from the West Australian duo of Marsh and Tye forced Roy's scoring rate to slacken and ultimately drew his wicket when trying to force the pace once more - beaten by one of Tye's slower ball variations and skying to mid-on.

Tye might easily have been the one celebrating a match-winning turn had Jake Ball been unable to bowl his final two overs, with England nearly losing the seamer unexpectedly at the denouement.

"It's probably been a year since we have played good one-day cricket and we have a lot of work to do if we want to be a force at the next World Cup", he added. "It was a tall ask to defend that total but Adil Rashid dragged us back into the game".

Australian ODI captain Steve Smith says Australia's 1-4 series loss to England was the result of batting lapses that must be addressed. There's a great feeling around this one-day side. The fight and character in the side was there in the series. Bairstow then took it upon himself to drive the scoreboard forward, but he too was dismissed after making a start, dragging an indeterminate prod at Starc onto the stumps after Smith brought back his No. 1 strike bowler.

"We're spoilt for choice at the moment, guys are fighting for positions left, right and win while we're learning, I think is pretty special", victorious captain Eoin Morgan told the host broadcaster. A huge thank you to everyone who's come today, they've been great.

"So I'd like to try and end this one-day series with a score and help the boys win the last game of the series". To come play the first ODI in this unbelievable stadium in front of the Barmy Army, just unbelievable.
