LONDON – England sealed the three-match ODI series with a second consecutive win against Pakistan. The third-string England side beat the Babar Azam-led Men in Green by a whopping 52 runs despite everything working in Pakistan’s favour. The game displayed England’s current depth in the white-ball format as a newly-assembled team, of which five players were debutants in the last match, convincingly defeated a world-class Pakistan side. England had to gather a new lot of players after its main ODI squad led by Eoin Morgan returned seven COVID-19 positive results post the Sri Lanka series. England appointed Ben Stokes as captain of the new-look side and asked him to lead the team in the white-ball series against Pakistan. The newly brought players did not disappoint the selectors and managed to beat one of the world’s top ODI teams, which also has the world’s No. 1 ODI batsman. England had beaten Pakistan in the first ODI by 9 wickets and also defeated the men in green in the second ODI by 52 runs.
