Cardiff - England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to bowl against Australia in the fourth one-day international at Cardiff on Saturday.


England are unchanged from the side that started the rain-hit third ODI at Birmingham which was abandoned after just over 15 overs of the England innings.

Australia called up fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile to replace Josh Hazelwood as their only change to the side from Edgbaston.

The good news was that the sun was shining and the forecast was good for the whole day.

Australa are 1-0 up in the series which has seen two games lost to rain and the fifth and final ODI takes place at Southampton on Monday.
