England may rest key players for Lord's 'dead rubber' ODI against Australia

Posted By: Nairita Das

London, July 3(ANI): England skipper Andrew Strauss has said that the team management might look to try out some inexperienced players in Saturday's final ODI against Australia at Lord's.

England has an unbeatable 3-1 series lead in the five-match series.

"With Bangladesh coming up as well maybe we can look to chopping and change a little. On the one hand, the 11 players that we have played so far have done a very good job and we are 3-1 up in the series," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Strauss, as saying.

"There are obviously other guys in the squad we want to have a look at, so we have to have a think about that," he added.

The three-match series against Bangladesh starts in Nottingham on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Australian coach Tim Nielsen said that Wednesday's 78-run win in the fourth ODI at The Oval has boosted the team's morale.

"We feel a bit better about ourselves. We were probably building to that game throughout the first three. It would be nice to finish 3-2," Nielsen said.

"If we do that, we know we've played well tomorrow and it's probably a pretty fair reflection of the series," he added. (ANI)
