Australia seal one-day series win

Australia's Brett Lee, right, celebrates after bowling out England's Adil Rashid

Australia beat England by seven wickets in the Fourth One Day International at Lords to win the one-day series.

There are still three games of the seven-match series to play, but as Australia are already 4-0 up it's impossible for England to beat them.

Andrew Strauss made 63 runs for the home side, but Brett Lee did the most damage, taking five wickets for just 49 runs as England were all out for 220.

Lee shattered the stumps four times as England were all out in the 47th over.

When Australia came to bat, Tim Paine scored 50 runs and Michael Clarke 62, as the visitors eased to victory with 38 balls left.
