Catch all the live action of the fourth ODI between Australia and England in Adelaide through our live commentary.


Australia's in-form opener Aaron Finch is set to miss the fourth one-day international against England on Friday, in a setback for the hosts as they seek their first win of the series.Finch has been ruled out of the Adelaide ODI with a hamstring strain and will be tested for fitness ahead of the final match in Perth, Cricket Australia said.The right-hander scored centuries in the first two matches and top-scored again on Sunday, but all in losing causes as Australia have conceded an unbeatable 3-0 lead to England in the five-match contest. He smashed 107 in Melbourne for the first match of the series, followed by 106 at the Gabba before leading the Aussie batsmen with a knock of 62 in Sydney. Finch's injury means Travis Head is likely to return to the lineup Friday in his home state of South Australia after being dropped for the third match at the SCG.

Meanwhile, as for the visitors, fast bowler Liam Plunkett will miss the last two one-day internationals against Australia due to a hamstring injury. The 32-year-old took four wickets in the first two ODIs but was injured in his second over of the third match. His unavailability is a blow for the tourists, who have taken an unassailable 3-0 in the series ahead of the fourth ODI in Adelaide on Friday. "It was really unfortunate, Liam is going to be out for around 10 days," Morgan said. "He's going to stay with the squad for his rehabilitation. "He's been a huge part of our progression over the past two years. We're looking at the T20 series for when he will come back so there will definitely be a change for tomorrow." The final match of the series will be played in Perth on Sunday before England, Australia and New Zealand square off in a tri-nation T20 series that begins on Feb. 3. England open their T20 campaign against Australia on Feb. 7.
