    The NatWest ODI series looked like heading towards a dull ending after two matches got washed out, but England's win in the fourth one-dayer on Saturday has given it a twist. The series is now evenly poised at 1-1 and the fifth and final match here will decide its fate.

    After getting thumped in the Ashes series, Australia would not like to return empty-handed. In the fourth ODI, Australia had a good chance of defending their low total of 227 after Clint McKay's hat-trick.
