Australian captain Tim Paine casts doubt on ODI future after England whitewash

England's Jonny Bairstow celebrates reaching a century during the one-day international cricket match against Australia

Off-spinner Ali, a thorn in Australia's side throughout this series, returned ODI-best figures of four for 46 runs in 8.4 overs, with England bidding for their first 5-0 whitewash of their arch-rivals. Tim Paine's Australia occupies the No.6 spot as per the latest ICC ranking update.

Asked to rate Buttler, Paine, who himself is a 'keeper-batsman said: "He's good, he's very good". "Unfortunately I couldn't kick on today".

Fast bowler Billy Stanlake's opening spell of three wickets for 18 runs had given Australia a shot of a first global win under coach Justin Langer, appointed after Darren Lehmann resigned in the fall-out from the Cape Town ball-tampering scandal in March. "But again in this game we have shown glimpses with bat and ball that there is certainly some real talent in the squad".

That score appeared considerably short of a competitive total at the halfway stage but the Aussies were buoyed by the early wicket of Jason Roy, who was bowled by off-spinner Agar.

They left out Jhye Richardson, with fellow paceman Kane Richardson returning, while batsman D´Arcy Short was selected after medium-pacer Michael Neser was omitted.

England had a massive changeover of players after the Tests and we went in with very much the same cattle and guys were pretty exhausted.

England, set a mere 206 to win, slumped to 50 for five and then 114 for eight. If there has been any shortfall, in any case the spin of Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid has comfortably made it up.

"With bat, ball and in the field during this series, we've just folded a little bit".

"Let's hope this time next year I'm at the World Cup and I'm in decent form and can win some games for the team". We were in a great position to win the game - and as well as Jos played, we just didn't put them under enough pressure.

Since the 2015 World Cup debacle, Eoin Morgan's side has played an aggressive brand of cricket and have progressed to the point where they are contenders for next year's World Cup, which will happen in their own backyard.

"But where I go with the rest of my cricket is something we will discuss in the coming weeks". Without the suspended Steve Smith and David Warner, Australia were further weakened by the absence of pace trio - Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins. "They know what it takes", he said.

Morgan is the orchestrator, in word and deed, of England's remarkable revival since their shambolic campaign - also under his leadership - at the last World Cup.

Vaughan added: "I've got everything crossed that he doesn't pick up an injury".

Australia captain Tim Paine won the toss only to see his side dismissed for 205 in 34.4 overs.

"What he provides to the team is that calmness", said Vaughan, who played 82 Tests and 86 ODIs between 1999 and 2008.
