Commentary

Thanks for joining us for today's coverage, the next match in the series is at Trent Bridge on Tuesday so be sure to check in again for live coverage as Australia aim to go one step closer to a clean sweep. Bye for now.

Well played by Australia, they're on the balcony shaking hands at securing the series, they're up 4-0 with three games remaining. Brett Lee will be the Man of the Match for his brilliant five wickets, Hauritz bowled well, and then all the batsmen contributed to a comfortable chase. For England, it was another miserable day, which began with a thoroughly disappointing batting effort. They have a lot of work ahead of them to find some form ahead of the Champions Trophy. Australia don't get their series trophy until after the final match, by the way.

Andrew Strauss: "We weren't very good today ... the same mistakes are being repeated and that is very frustrating."

Ricky Ponting: "Brett's spell was terrific late in the innings. The hard thing now with the series over is to focus on the next three games."
