Australia cruised to an eight-wicket win over demoralised England with more than a day to spare today to claim a 4-0 series lead and stand on the cusp of an Ashes whitewash.

Led by a century from opener Chris Rogers and a 136-run stand with Shane Watson, the Australians had few problems getting the required 201 runs on the fourth day to seal England's fate at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

It was the best fourth innings run chase in 51 years at the Melbourne Cricket Ground since England's 237 for three in 1962-63.
