341/7 (49.3/50)
340/7 (50.0/50)
England beat Pakistan by 3 wickets
Right then, it's England 3-0 in the series with only one formality ODI left. It's on Sunday, May 19 in Leeds. Do join us at 1100 local (1000 GMT) for all the action. Cheers!
Jason Roy is awarded the Man of the Match for his impactful hundred. His knock set the tone up front and played a big role in England's victory.
Earlier in the match, Babar Azam stroked a beautiful century but failed to carry on. The likes of Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Hafeez also got starts but the kind of finish that was desired never came at the death. Eventually, it was one more defeat for Pakistan, their 9th in a row in a completed ODI and they are finding no momentum heading into the mega event.
It was yet another poor display of bowling and fielding from Pakistan. Their performance with the new balls was not up to the mark. The pacers failed to create much impact initially, however, towards the end, they bowled some great deliveries to scare the English team. The young bowler, Mohammad Hasnain, impressed with his pace but he went for aplenty. Junaid and Hasan were very inconsistent with their lengths and overall, it was once again a below-par show from the Asian team.
The target in excess of 300 is always supposed to be a challenging one but given the way England made a mockery of the last chase in Bristol, 341 looked below-par. The English openers once again laid a solid platform with Jason Roy finally converting his fifty to hundred, after getting dropped on 25 by Fakhar Zaman. It was a cruise for the hosts but then came a roadblock. They lost four wickets for 15 runs in a span of 17 balls in the middle overs which brought Pakistan back into the game. However, the asking rate wasn't too much and Ben Stokes along with the lower order batsmen - Joe Denly, Tom Curran and Adil Rashid overhauled the target in the last over.
A hard-fought win for a change for England. They won't mind it though as it tested their lower order batting. A fine knock under pressure from Ben Stokes and he stayed till the end to drive the English team home.

OUT! Junaid has taken a stunner off his own bowling. All those fielding lapses from him will be forgotten if this breakthrough leads to something big for Pakistan. He digs in a short ball, not a slower one this time and Denly is hurried into his pull shot. Ends up playing it off the bottom half of his bat and it flies to the right of the bowler. Junaid reacts quickly and snaps a one-handed catch. He rolls on the ground a couple of times and then is on his knees for celebration. Imad comes and hugs him and Sarfaraz also joins him in showing his joy. The 42-run stand is broken. 83 needed off 60 balls.

Mohammad Hasnain To Jason Roy
FOUR! A short pitched delivery on the stumps, Roy loses the sight of the ball while going for the pull. The top edge parries over the keeper for a boundary to fine leg. 50 up for Roy.Can he convert it into a 100?
Hasnain comes on to bowl... but loses his runup. Seems like he lost his footing. The back leg just slipped a little, but very late.

Mohammad Hasnain To James Vince OUT!
OUT! Chops it on! Finally a wicket for Pakistan and it has come because of excess pace. Vince backs away to the leg side and Hasnain follows him. The right-hander is cramped for room and looks to defend. Unluckily for him, the ball hits the bottom edge and then goes onto the stumps! The 94-run stand has been broken.

A short ball on the stumps, Roy pulls it to the fine leg fence where Junaid Khan fields and prevents a certain boundary. Only a single results.
