Eoin Morgan Banned From England vs Pakistan 4th ODI

England's batsmen showed they are in prime form ahead of the Cricket World Cup by chasing down a target of 359 with 5.1 overs to spare to beat Pakistan in the third one-day global between the teams Tuesday.

YORKSHIRE and England's Jonny Bairstow believes his Indian Premier League stint has taken his game to new heights.

At the toss during Tuesday's third ODI match between Pakistan and England, the visiting team captain Sarfaraz Ahmed also confirmed that the leg-spinner will soon be joining the team.

"They're still hanging on", Bairstow said when asked if had any bats left.

"I genuinely loved it, being over there (India)".

Imam took advantage of a true pitch, small boundaries and a lightning-fast outfield to make 151 from 131 balls - the highest ODI score by a Pakistan player against England and fifth-best in the country's history.

His ton came off 74 deliveries, and was well supported by Jason Roy, who blazed 76 off just 55 balls.

Joe Root (43) and Ben Stokes (37) played their parts before the pairing of Moeen Ali and captain Eoin Morgan, 46 and 17-run unbeaten innings respectively, got their side over the line for the loss of a mere four wickets.

It will be easier to get Bale and Cross since Real Madrid's head coach Zinedine Zidane is ready to bid them farewell. Gareth Bale could leave the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu this summer as there are doubts over his future at the club.


England batted first and scored 373/3 on the back of Jos Buttler's century and three other half-centurions.

"We are backing ourselves and competition is healthy all the way through".

Mohammad Amir's hopes of a World Cup spot hang in the balance now after his illness appears to be chicken pox so that will likely rule him out for the remainder of the series while there will likely be changes from that last match.

The only downside for England was that Morgan has risked a potential one-match ban for his side's slow over rates.

Morgan was sanctioned after World Cup hosts and favourites England took around four hours to bowl their 50 overs in a six-wicket win over Pakistan in the third ODI at Bristol on Tuesday.

Morgan has also been fined 40 per cent of his match fee.

It is Morgan's second such offence within 12 months after England were guilty of a slow-over rate against the West Indies in February.

Woakes, however, said Archer's emergence could only strengthen England, who face Pakistan in two more ODIs - in Nottingham on Friday and Leeds on Sunday - before the selectors name their final 15 for the World Cup.
