Australia wins toss and elects to bat first in 4th ODI

LEEDS, England (AP) -- Australia won the toss and decided to bat first against England in the fourth one-day international at Leeds, with a second chance to take the five-match series on Thursday.

The side batting first has won all three previous games, with Australia leading 2-1.

England, after winning by 93 runs on Tuesday, also changed two. Fast bowler Steven Finn was being rested, giving Mark Wood a chance, and David Willey was in for the injured Chris Woakes.



England: Eoin Morgan (captain), Jason Roy, Alex Hales, James Taylor, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood.

Australia: Steve Smith (captain), Aaron Finch, Joe Burns, George Bailey, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Marsh, Matthew Wade, John Hastings, James Pattinson, Pat Cummins.
