England Cricket team leg-spinner, Adil Rashid, who has been in terrific form in the ongoing One-day International series against Australia, has reiterated that his team will give the hundred percent in the final game to whitewash Australia.

Meanwhile, England is currently leading 4-0 in the five-match ODI series. The host thoroughly dominated the series with the revamped Aussie side trying to find ground under their feet.

Moreover, they have played as a team with players chipping in with useful contributions from time-to-time. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow provided the team an ample support while the spinners have also done the bulk of a job.

So far, Rashid has bagged 11 wickets in the series with the best bowling figures of four for 47. Most recently, he went past Graeme Swann’s (104) tally of ODI wickets with 106 scalps.

Talking to BBC ahead of the fifth ODI, he admitted the team is fairly confident to go all out for the kill.

We have the chance to win 5-0 so we are going to go out and give it our best shot. It is Australia, it is nice beating them but it is nice beating everybody else as well,” Rashid concluded.
