England battle to 12-run win over Pakistan at Ageas Bowl

Cricket- England Nets- The Ageas Bowl Southampton Britain

Moeen Ali and Jason Roy could return to the England XI for the second one-day worldwide against Pakistan at the Ageas Bowl on Saturday.

New father Buttler's 110 not out was the cornerstone of World Cup hosts England's 373 for three. Fakhar Zaman's 138 and fifties from Babar Azam and Asif Ali followed by an unbeaten 41 from skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed nearly got Pakistan home before a 19 run target in the last over proved too much for the visitors, who finished with 361/7.

Following Wednesday's no-result washout at The Oval, victory left England 1-0 up in this five-match series. Haris Sohail's was the fourth wicket to fall, caught behind off Liam Plunkett's bowling after the batsman had hit 14 off 18 balls and the team's score was 274. Asked if Buttler had scaled new levels with his stunning knock, Morgan said: "I think so".

"It was a fantastic game of cricket and great to come out on the right side".

"When he plays innings like that, and they seem to be grouped closer and closer together, it means we're very fortunate to have him in our side". "I thought all the bowlers today who were put under the pump, when we couldn't take wickets throughout that whole 30-over period, they reacted really well". "I certainly don't have it".

Then, in a late-afternoon tweet , Trump suggested that the tariffs could be removed and that the trade talks "will continue". As noted by a commentary by state news agency Xinhua, any purchases should be "in line with reality".

Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur admitted the tourists had no answers to Buttler's brutal hitting, while England skipper Morgan believes the Taunton-born star just keeps getting better and better. Imam was soon dismissed for 35 as Moeen Ali had him caught and bowled, though.

Although Azam fell in the next over, Pakistan, led by Asif Ali (51), refused to give up and set up a tense finale needing 32 runs off the final three overs.

Alterations in field and bouncer restrictions, a reduction in the number of overs in an ODI, generally shorter boundaries and the change to a ball from each end as opposed to just one for a full duration of an innings, make comparisons across the generations arguably even harder than they would be in Test cricket.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed, 41 not out at the finish, praised his side for the way they so almost reached a winning total. Zaman raced to his century and went on to score 138 off only 106 balls with the help of 12 fours and 4 sixes.
