Pakistan get some solace
Pakistan's Sarfraz Ahmed and Shoaib Malik shared a fluent partnership of 163 to lead the tourists to a consolation four-wicket win over England in the fifth and final one-day international in Cardiff on Sunday.
The hosts, put into bat, mustered a respectable 302 for nine from 50 overs but their bowling lacked penetration and Pakistan reached the victory target with 10 balls to spare.
England, who won the series 4-1, never produced the explosive power that has characterised their recent one-day batting.
Jason Roy made 87 off 89 balls and Ben Stokes 75 off 76 but they lost wickets at regular intervals, Pakistan seamer Hasan Ali completing figures of 4-60.
SCORES IN BRIEF:
ENGLAND: 302 for 9 in 50 overs (Roy 87, Stokes 75; Ali 4-60, Amir 3-50)
PAKISTAN: 304 for 6 in 48.2 overs (Malik 77, Sarfraz 90, Azhar 33; Dawson 2-70, Wood 2-56)
Result: Pakistan won by but lost the 5-match series 4-1.
Player-of-the-match: Sarfraz Ahmed.
Player-of-the-series: Joe Root.
