England restrict Pakistan to 247/8 in fourth ODI

LEEDS: After a quick start, Pakistan batting line scramble again to be restricted to a total of … in the first innings of fourth ODI at Headingley,  Leeds.

Skipper Azhar Ali won the toss and elected to bat first. The decision was supported by only himself as he was the only top scorer with 80 runs from 104 balls unless Imad Wasim in the late hours smashed a fifty on 32 balls.

Despite Azhar and Imad, no other Pakistani batsman could make an impact, Sami Aslam (24), Babar Azam (12), Rizwan (12) and Sharjeel Khan departed for 16.

From England, the spin twin, Adil Rasheed and Moeen Alee were tremendous with the ball. The duo really tied up Pakistani batsmen and denied them easy runs.

Adil ended with the figures of 3 for 43 in 10 overs, while his partner Alee had 2 for 39 in his ten.

When England come to bat, they would require 248 runs to win this game.
