England beat Pakistan to secure ODI series win

0 71

After rain reduced the contest to 47 overs per side, England recovered from 160 for seven to 247 all out in 45.2 overs.

Fast bowler Saqib Mahmood stood out again, dismissing Captain Babar Azam lbw for 19 and Mohammad Rizwan caught behind for five, while Lewis Gregory removed opener Imam-ul-Haq with his first ball – the seventh delivery of the innings.

Saud Shakeel kept the tourists in the game with 56 from 77 balls while Hassan Ali took 22 runs from one Matt Parkinson over to energise the vocal Pakistan supporters.

But Shakeel holed out to deep square-leg off Parkinson and Gregory claimed the final wicket in the following over, Pakistan dismissed for 195 with 36 balls remaining.
