Australia set England 300 in 4th ODI to level series

LEEDS, England (AP) -- Australia set England a challenging target of 300 to square the one-day international series at Headingley on Friday.

Australia, leading the five-match series 2-1, must be favored to clinch the series, seeing as the team batting first has won each match so far.

Thanks to half-centuries by George Bailey (75) and Glenn Maxwell (85), which pulled Australia out of trouble at 30-3, and a lusty finish by Matthew Wade and John Hastings, they racked 299-7.

England paceman David Willey, in for the injured Chris Woakes, earned the wickets of Australia's top three batsmen, including captain Steve Smith for 2. He took 3-13 inside five overs, then was smashed in his last three overs.
