England survived a late assault by the Australian fast bowlers on Sunday to win the third ODI by one wicket with five balls to spare and clinch the five-match series against the world champions 3-0.

Off-spinner Swann took four wickets for 37 runs in 10 overs in an innings where only Shane Watson (61) passed fifty and Australia captain Ricky Ponting was out for his latest low score of the tour.

Together with left-arm spinner Michael Yardy (one for 45) he checked Australia's progress after the tourists started briskly.

James Anderson, on his Lancashire home ground, then finished off the innings with a burst of three for five in seven balls.

Brief score: Australia 212 all out in 46 overs (S. Watson 61, T. Paine 44; Swann 4-37, Anderson 3-22)
