Steven Finn took four wickets as England limited Australia to 200-9 in their fourth one-day cricket international in Durham.
Finn finished 4-37 after England won the toss and elected to field at Chester-le-Street. James Anderson and Tim Bresnan claimed two wickets each, while David Hussey top-scored for Australia with 70.
England can clinch the five-game series with a victory today. It won the first two games before the third was rained out three days ago without a ball being bowled.
