Australiagained some consolation for losing the Ashes as they crushed England once again at Lord's this time by 7 wickets.
It is Australia's 2nd victory at the home of cricket in the series and the tourists now have an unassailable 4-0 lead in the 7 match series.
Brett Lee turned in a superb performance with the ball picking up 5-49 as England slumped from 111-2 to be bowled out for just 220.
Australia had few problems in sealing victory Vice Captain Michael Clarke hit an unbeaten 62 to guide Australia home with over 6 overs to spare.
Despite Australia's disappointing form in Test Cricket over the last months they appear to have some talented young players in the shorter form of the game, and winning this series in England will give Ricky Ponting's men a lot of confidence moving forward.
Just a few days after this series ends England and Australia will travel to South Africa for the ICC Champions trophy, Australia are the defending champions.
If Australia can maintain this form then they have a real chance of upsetting the Betting Odds and winning the Champions trophy again.
