New Delhi: James Vince scored a century as England defeated Pakistan by three wickets in the third and final ODI to clean sweep the three-match series 3-0. With Vince’s first century in international cricket, England achieved the target of 332 runs for the loss of seven wickets in 48 overs. But there was a moment in this match when Pakistani players clashed with each other about one thing.
Pakistani players clash with each other
There was a moment in this match when Pakistani players clashed with each other over a catch. In fact, during the 44th over of Pakistan’s innings, Lewis Gregory played a shot in the air on a ball from Haris Rauf. The ball went into the air and there was some confusion between Shadab Khan and Sarfaraz Khan on the field. However, in the end Shadab took the catch. But Sarfaraz did not look happy at all. Actually Sarfaraz had keeping gloves in his hand and he could have easily caught this catch. But Shadab did not make any gesture and he himself started moving towards the ball.
England won the series
Pakistan had made a big score of 331 for nine when they were invited to bat first but England’s second-class team left no stone unturned to prove them dwarf. England had to field a completely new team in these three matches after some players went on isolation from their parent team due to being infected with Kovid-19.
England’s score was 165 for five after 24 overs, but after this Vince made an important partnership of 129 runs with Lewis Gregory (77). Vince was caught at mid-off by Haris Rauf (4 for 65) while Gregory also waved the ball in the air. Then England were 29 runs behind the target. Craig Overton (18 not out) and Brayden Cars (12 not out) took England to the target. Kars had earlier also taken five wickets for 61 runs.
Earlier, the highlight of the Pakistani innings was Babar’s century and his 179-run partnership with Mohammad Rizwan (74). Apart from Kars, Sadiq Mahmood took three wickets for 60 runs for England.
