England completed a series whitewash against Australia with another impressive display in a rain-hit fifth one-day international at Old Trafford.
The weather meant that Australia were handed just 32 overs and they struggled to as they managed just 145-7 with play only starting at 17:30 due to the consistent rain fall throughout the day.
England were then set a revised target of 138 fro 29 overs which they met with little difficulty as Alastair Cook (58) and Ravi Bopara (52 not out) combined to put on a 92 run partnership.
The defeat compounded a miserable tour for Australia and their captain Michael Clarke who loses his first series as the skipper.
Rain had already wiped out on the games and the Australians will likely be thankful as a 5-0 win would have seen England overtake them at the top of the ODI rankings.
England were once again far superior with both bat and ball as Bopara and James Tredwell both picked up twi wickets, while the Australians were not helped by Clarke and Peter Forrest both being run out.
Steve Finn picked up a wicket towards the end of the proceedings as England once again restricted the Australian, with George Bailey the only man to trouble the scorecard with an unbeaten 46.
England's reply was dominated by the Essex duo, after Ian Bell fell in the first over to Clint McKay and Jonathon Trott was clean bowled by Clarke.
Eoin Morgan came in to hit nine fro just five balls and seal the victory which proved that England are now a force in limited overs cricket.
"It feels good, great to win the series," said Cook. "It's been a brilliant effort from the lads. We've always been at Australia, and always tried to put them under some pressure.
"Somebody said our number seven didn't get a bat, so that's credit to the top order.
"It was another really good performance set up by the bowlers, and it was nice to get over the line at the end. Australia were always fighting against us - and we didn't let them get runs. So credit to the guys who bowled."
