England beat Pakistan by 54 runs
That is it from this game and series then. England have stamped their authority with a 4-0 victory and will aim to replicate this form during the World Cup. Not too many international matches being played over the course of these 10 days with the warm-up games starting on May 24. Looking forward to the big tourney. Take a break, refresh yourselves and be back for the mega event. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
CHRIS WOAKES HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Good choice, given that normally batsmen get that award and Root and Morgan were in the reckoning. But well done Woakes, with a 4-fer and a 5-fer in this series. JASON ROY HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE SERIES, for scoring 277 runs in just 3 outings, which had a century and 2 half centuries.
At last, we got a 5-fer in this series. It was turning out to be monotonously boring with only batsmen getting their runs. But in this game, we got a 4-fer from Afridi and then in the run chase, a 5-fer from Woakes, breaking Pakistan's backbone. Rashid was decent too, for his couple of wickets. It was a better performance from England but their bowling still needs a working over.
It is at that stage when the actual fight began. Babar Azam and Sarfaraz Ahmed sized up the deck beautifully and played sensible strokes. Their 146-run stand kept Pakistan in the hunt till Adil Rashid produced a beauty in the field to run Babar out. Post that, Sarfaraz tried to hang around and take his team home but eventually, it was too much for him and he felt 3 runs short of his ton.
Heard of the saying, 'Looks are deceptive?' Perhaps Pakistan were deceived by the look of this pitch. They probably thought it was a belter like the previous ones in this series and could play their shots. But they were wrong. One needed to get set on this pitch and then try to play shots. Before they could even think of the word boundary in their mind, Woakes had reduced them to 6/3 in 3 overs.
For a change, in this game, the bowlers got a chance to come to the party. At first, with Root and Morgan going great guns in the first innings, it seemed like 500 was indeed on the cards. But Root's wicket led to a collapse and England were 'restricted' to 351. At the halfway mark, given the way Pakistan had batted in this series, it looked like they might chase this down.
A perfect warm-up heading into the World Cup for England. Their 11TH SUCCESSIVE UNBEATEN BILATERAL SERIES IN ODIS. Plus in this one, not a game lost.

Ha ha ha! What happened there? Hasnain keeps backing away to the leg side, goes out of the pitch but Willey does not deliver! He probably expected Hasnain to not play that ball.

Good effort from Ben Stokes. A length ball, dead straight, Afridi lofts this straight down the ground. Stokes gets across from long on, dives full stretch to his right, stops the ball partially, is careful enough to ensure that his body does not touch the line and then returns the ball. Two runs taken. The third umpire had numerous looks at those.

FOUR! Very nicely played. Almost from the back of the bat. A short ball outside off, Afridi rises with the bounce and tries to keep it down, aiming it to run the ball towards third man but was defeated by the pace and bounce. Eventually, he gets it wide of Buttler and higher as well, to the third man fence.

Chris Woakes To Hasan Ali OUT!
OUT! Caught! FIFER FOR CHRIS WOAKES! His third in ODI cricket. What a day for him. Struck with the new ball and now is finishing it off. A short ball, outside off, Hasan looked to pull but was beaten by pace. He had his eyes closed too while playing that stroke. As a result, a top edge was induced which went towards long leg. David Willey was waiting there and got down on a knee, taking the catch gracefully.
POWERPLAY 3 time. 5 fielders allowed outside the circle now, though doubt that Morgan will make any change.

David Willey To Asif Ali OUT!
OUT! Caught. There goes wicket number 8. A short ball, outside off, Asif looks to pull but cannot quite get underneath the ball. He mistimes it and it tamely lobs up to Ben Stokes at mid on. He just has to backtrack a step or two and takes it easily. Replays show that Willey might have just changed his grip on the ball.

Chris Woakes To Imad Wasim OUT!
OUT! It is bat! Imad goes and takes the review along with him. Not that it would have mattered... Down the leg side, Wasim looked to tuck it fine but missed. Buttler dived to his right and took a good catch. To us, it seemed like there might have been just pad but there also seemed to be a woody sound. Woakes and Buttler were very confident and the umpire raised his finger. Now here is the surprise. Imad took the review but then looked dejected. Ultra Edge detected a spike when the ball passed the bat and also around the thigh pads. The wonderful day for Woakes gets even better. Three wickets with the new ball and now one, in his second spell.
Caught behind! Or not? Imad Wasim has taken a review after being adjudged caught down the leg side. Sounded like bat...

Moeen Ali To Sarfaraz Ahmed OUT!
OUT! Sarfaraz has been run out! On 97! Would you believe it? Aiming to guide it towards third man and run, only to see the ball hitting Buttler's leg and stop and then - off go the bails - khadoosh! Landed outside off, Ahmed looks to run it down to third man. Jos Buttler sticks out his right leg and luckily for him, it deflects onto his left boot. Sarfaraz is out of his crease and tries to get back in but by that time, Buttler takes the bails off! It is referred upstairs but replays show that the bat, being plonked, is in the air when the bails are off! Tough luck for Ahmed. He departs 3 short of a ton.
Is that a run out? Buttler seems to have pulled off a stunner here. Sarfaraz looks frustrated with himself. And replays seem to show that Sarfaraz is late...

Adil Rashid To Sarfaraz Ahmed OUT!
OUT! Adil Rashid has done an MS Dhoni! Not looking at the stumps but still hitting them with precision. A run out against the run of play and that looked the only way England could have broken this 146-run partnership. Coming to the delivery, it's a flighted one on middle, Sarfaraz tries to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. The ball rolls on the leg side and Babar Azam comes out of the crease in search of a run. He is sent back immediately but before that Jos Buttler quickly gets to the ball and fires in the throw at the bowler's end. But it's quite wide. Adil Rashid collects it by stretching to his right, turns, has his back to the stumps but still manages to flick it onto them. They appeal and the umpire goes upstairs. The replays find Azam well short of the crease. Rashid magic here, not with his delivery but at least with his presence of mind.
Appeal for a run out! Adil Rashid has done a brilliant job to hit the stumps. Is Babar Azam short? England are looking excited...

The required run rate is still manageable, under 8 but this pair slowly needs to start upping the ante. Perhaps they are waiting for the fifth bowler.
