Azhar guides Pak to 247

Pakistan captain Azhar Ali led from the front with 80 but his side were still held to 247 for eight by England in the fourth one-day international at Headingley on Thursday.

When Azhar was out, Pakistan -- already 3-0 down in the five-match series -- were 169 for six off 38 overs and in danger of failing to bat out their full 50 in this day/night fixture.

But the fit-again Imad Wasim's unbeaten 57 and his eighth-wicket stand of 56 with Hasan Ali took Pakistan past 200.

England slow bowlers Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali shared five wickets between them, with leg-spinner Rashid -- one of five Yorkshire players in the side -- taking three for 47 on his home ground.


PAKISTAN: 247 for 8 in 50 overs (Aslam 24, Azhar 80, Wasim not out 57; Jordan 2-42, Rashid 3-47, Ali 2-39)
