Meanwhile, England start the match as favourites against traditional rivals Australia. The hosts have already taken an unassailable 3-0 lead in the 5-match series.
Earlier in the day, Australia won the toss at Chester-le-Street and opted to bat first. The visitors got of to a good start. Aaron Finch and stand-in opener Travis Head opened the batting for Australia in the absence of the ever-so-dangerous David Warner. They put up a sound partnership of 103 for the first wicket before Head got dismissed for a well-made 63 off 64 balls.
As we speak, Australia are comfortably placed at 171/1 in 34 overs. Finch (74*) and Shaun Marsh (30*).
The wicket of Head was picked by Rashid which took him to the record. It was a rank long-hop which Head tanked straight to the man at deep midwicket, where David Willey was present to take the catch.
Following Swann on the list in the third spot is Embury.
England host Australia for the fifth and final ODI of the series on Sunday.
