LONDON: England thrashed Pakistan  by three wickets in the fourth One-day International to clinch the series 3-0 at Trent Bridge on Friday.

England were cruising to a victory target of 341 at 201 for one when Jason Roy´s dismissal for 114 sparked a collapse that saw three wickets lost for seven runs in 10 balls.

But Ben Stokes´s 71 not out saw England home with three balls to spare after Babar Azam made 115 in Pakistan´s 340 for seven. Victory gave World Cup hosts and favourites England an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

England had won the toss and elected to field. Batting first, Pakistan's Babar Azam scored a brilliant hundred to steer the team to 340 for seven against the hosts.

He made 115 off 112 balls with 13 fours and a six. It was his ninth ODI century. He was involved in the hundred-run partnership for the first two wickets – 109 with Fakhar Zaman for the first and 104 with Mohammad Hafeez for the second.

Chasing the decent target , England completed  stunning win in just 49.3 overs  with thre wickets in hands. Pakistan was desperately looking to turn the tide when they take on England in a must-win game.
