England beat Australia at Old Trafford to seal a 5-0 series whitewash, with Jos Buttler hitting his sixth one-day international century.

Jos Buttler has hit a century to earn England victory over Australia in their fifth one-day international that seals a series whitewash.

The hosts were left chasing 206 at Old Trafford and hit their target through the batting of Butler, who recorded his sixth ODI century.

Travis Head (56) was the only Aussie to surpass the half-century mark, with D'Arcy Short and Alex Carey lagging shortly behind on 47 and 44 respectively.

England were languishing on 114-8 in response, though, as Jonny Bairstow (12), Joe Root (1) and Eoin Morgan (0) were all sent packing in quick succession.

Jason Roy, Liam Plunkett and Jake Ball went for a combined two runs, meanwhile, but Butler (110*) stepped in and was joined by Adil Rashid (20) for a stand of 81, getting England over the line for just their second ever 5-0 series win.
