Pakistan has now slumped to a couple of back-to-back series defeats in the ODI format. After their 5-0 whitewash versus Australia, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Co has now lost the series versus England. The story in the previous match was pretty similar to the ones in the previous two encounters. Their batting put a stupendous show but the bowling couldn’t get the English batsmen on the mat by any means.

Yesterday, the visitors had Babar Azam as their third centurion and his knock went in vain as England chased down 341 with three balls remaining. Jason Roy’s blinder of 114 helped the Brits to an unassailable 3-0 lead with the last ODI to be played tomorrow at the Headingley in Leeds. The hosts didn’t have their skipper- Eoin Morgan, who is expected to be back after serving a one-match ban.
