World Cup 2019, Pakistan vs England Highlights: Pakistan beat England by 14 runs at Trent Bridge on Monday as the World Cup’s first centuries from Joe Root and Jos Buttler were not enough to help the hosts and pre-tournament favourites overhaul the huge target of 349 set for them.
England had won the toss and put Pakistan in to bat, banking on the pace of fast bowlers Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer for early wickets and no doubt hoping to recreate the way the West Indies skittled Pakistan out for 105 on Friday. That defeat was Pakistan’s 11th successive loss in one-day internationals, including a 4-0 series defeat to England in the run-up to the World Cup.
After Pakistan set 349, England had a poor start with opener Jason Roy (8) being removed by spinner Shadab Khan in the third over. Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root cautiously took the score past 50. But left-arm seamer Wahab Riaz got rid of Bairstow (32) to give England second blow in the ninth over. England skipper Eoin Morgan couldn’t stand long and was bowled out by Mohammad Hafeez who had made 62-ball 84 during Pakistan innings. In the 22nd over, England faced the fourth jolt hen all-rounder Ben Stokes edged Shoaib Malik and the ball went straight to wicketkeeper Sarfaraz Ahamed. Earlier, half-centuries by Mohammad Hafeez (84), Babar Azam (63) and skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed (55) powered Pakistan to the big total.

Time for drinks! Joe Root looking good on 35 while giving him company is captain Morgan. However, Pakistan's over rate is slightly poor ENG- 85/2 after 14 ovs

Moeen Ali's Impact
The off-spinner has bowled out his 10 overs and conceded 50 runs but most importantly picked up three wickets. Moeen’s bowling impact of +56 runs makes this his second-best bowling performance ever for England in ODIs. His best was when he took 3 for 28 (5) against Australia - also at Trent Bridge - last year. PAK- 257/3 after 40.3 ovs
FOUR | That was a juicy full length delivery from Woakes and gets the treatment it deserves from Sarfaraz. The Pakistan captain cleared his front leg and taps into the gap with perfection, over mid-wicket for an easy boundary. Pakistan continues to motor along. PAK- 230/3 after 37.1 ovs
What makes Babar Azam so special?
Babar Azam has reached a half-century in four of his last six ODI knocks, with two of those coming at Trent Bridge. He is exceptional when coming down the track against spinners. His footwork has been exceptional against Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali, thereby nullifying England's threat in the middle over. PAK- 175//2
