In-form paceman Pat Cummins will sit out the fifth and final one-day international against England because of injury.

Cummins was ruled out of Sunday's ODI in Perth due to hamstring tightness as he joined opener Aaron Finch on the sidelines.

The 24-year-old produced a man-of-the-match display in Australia's three-wicket win Friday.

Cummins claimed figures of 3-24 as Australia ended their run of three consecutive ODI defeats to England, having reclaimed the Ashes.

Jhye Richardson and Andrew Tye are in line to replace Cummins in Australia's pace attack.
