Pakistan beats 5th ODI, England win series 4-1


CARDIFF: Pakistan beat England by four wickets to secure a consolation victory in the fifth and final one-day international in Cardiff on Sunday.

England still won the series 4-1 but Pakistan’s success denied the hosts a first home 5-0 ODI clean sweep and ended their dream of an unbeaten season in 50-over cricket.

Pakistan collapsed to 77 for three chasing 303 before a fourth-wicket partnership of 163 between Shoaib Malik (77) and Sarfraz Ahmed (90) turned the match their way.
