Australia recall Glenn Maxwell for ODIs in opposition to England

Australia won the toss and sent England in to bat in Friday's fourth one-day global in Adelaide.

But there was no escaping the fact England were simply blown away by Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood.

Where Australia had been happy to score around six an over for the first 10 overs and then throttle back to four or five until the closing overs, Maxwell said that England had shown it was better to be more aggressive and then "chill" at a run a ball.

A slimmer-than-expected Adelaide Oval crowd of 24,329 seemed destined to be filing out of the exits early when Cummins and Hazlewood combined to have Eoin Morgan's side a sickly 5 for 8 as the new ball swung and seamed, before Woakes delivered his latest outstanding display of a series England had already won.

Smith has scored just 86 runs at a strike rate of 78 in three games.

Hazlewood, who is Australia's best-ranked bowler in Tests and 50-over format, has called for training sessions with the white ball during Test matches which could help Australia bridge the gap with other teams.

"I thought the way we bowled in the first 45 overs was good, but Jos played exceptionally well, Woakesy too, but we bowled poorly at the end, can't do that to a guy like Jos", he said.

Four of England's top-six batsmen made ducks and the tourists did not hit a boundary until the 15th over.

Local boy Head replaced the injured Aaron Finch at the top order and nearly repeated his Australia Day hundred against Pakistan past year, but a score of 96 was sufficient to secure a consolation triumph in a five-match series his side now trail 3-1.

The fifth match is on Sunday in Perth.

Alex Hales at least got 3 runs on the board before Cummins took out his off-stump and Zimbabwe's record low innings tally of 35 against Sri Lanka in 2004 looked under serious threat.

Liam Plunkett and Mark Wood displayed the sort of pace and seam that was lacking for England's meek attack during the Ashes, and spinner Adil Rashid has been a risky weapon.

"From there it's a very hard position to win the game but from there I thought we did rebuild fairly well. I guess you have to outline some training sessions for the white ball stuff and work on your variations even while you're playing on a Test tour", he added.

England legspinner Adil Rashid (3-49) briefly gave the visitors a glimmer of hope when he dismissed Australia captain Steve Smith then Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis but Head calmly steered Australia out of trouble before leaving Tim Paine (25 not out) to finish the job. "Unfortunately, we needed something extra special which didn't come".
