The bulk of the job may already be done, but England captain Alastair Cook is determined to deliver a final Ashes insult to Australia when the Test gets underway today.
Victory in Durham moved the hosts into a 3-0 series lead with one match to play, ensuring the urn would stay with England for the third time in a row.
Cook's side allowed themselves a well-earned celebration following their 74-run success last time out, but he was adamant there would be no loss of competitive edge at the Kia Oval.
He believes any Test match against Australia is reason enough to be at full tilt, but with the tantalising prospect of becoming the first England side to win a home Ashes 4-0 on the table, he expects his men to go in hungry for the win.
