England win second ODI against Pakistan

England produced another polished display to beat Pakistan at Lord’s and take a 2-0 lead in the one-day series.

Having won easily at the Ageas Bowl on Wednesday, England reduced the tourists to 2-3 courtesy of impressive new-ball spells from Mark Wood and Chris Woakes.

Sarfraz Ahmed scored a superb 105 and Imad Wasim struck 63 not out to salvage a competitive total of 251.

But Joe Root’s 89 and 68 from captain Eoin Morgan helped England to a four-wicket win with 15 balls to spare.

England’s victory is their first in an ODI at Lord’s since 2012, having lost their previous three at the ground.

They have now won 10 of the past 11 ODIs against Pakistan, and take a 12-8 advantage in the ‘super series’ to Trent Bridge for the third game of the five-match series.
