Jason Roy: England batsman on 'emotional' century against Pakistan after 'rough morning'

Jason Roy: England batsman on 'emotional' century against Pakistan after 'rough morning'

England head into Friday's fourth ODI in Nottingham 2-0 up with two to play after a no result washout at The Oval was followed by 12-run and six-wicket wins at Southampton and Bristol respectively.

Where is PAK vs ENG 4th ODI?

Without a second thought, Jonny Bairstow should have been selected as the wicket-keeper for the side as he is in tremendous form. FYI: It won't be the first time that an ODI totals milestone would have been broken at a World Cup. Asif Ali, 5. Sarfaraz Ahmed (captain and wk), 6.

Pakistan batsman Imam-ul-Haq suffered a nasty-looking injury just weeks away from the start of the World Cup when he was struck a painful blow on the arm by England fast bowler Mark Wood on Friday. Butler will captain his side in the coming game as Eoin Morgan is suspended for one game due to slow over-rate during ENG vs PAK 3rd ODI.


It was at Trent Bridge where England set the highest total in one-day global history of 481 for six against Australia past year, having set the previous record of 444 for three against Pakistan in Nottingham in 2016. He was dropped by Fakhar Zaman off Imad Wasim while on 27 and with England 62 without loss.

Pakistan too have a shot at squaring the series and in fact had a chance at Bristol on on Tuesday when Imam-ul-Haq's brilliant 151 from 131 balls provided the bedrock to what would have been a formidably challenging total of 358 for 9. Moeen Ali is a dependable player from England who comes in handy with both bat and ball.

It is recommended to go for three England bowlers as compared to Pak bowling attack England has a slightly a better attack. Archer will make way to the team as Liam Plunkett will not play in the upcoming match. A six and a four in Junaid's next over as good as settled things, before Stokes hit the winning run off Hasan.

ENG vs PAK Dream 11: Jos Butler (c &wk), Jason Roy, Joe Root, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Moeen Ali (vc), Imad Wasim, Chris Jordan, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer and Hasan Ali.
