World Cup 2019 Pakistan set England 349-run target

Pakistan lost sixth wicket on 319 runs as Sarfraz Ahmed departed against England in the ICC Cricket World Cup at the Trent Bridge, Nottingham.

Pakistan s openers launched a confident assault on England s bowlers at Trent Bridge as they tried to put a woeful collapse against the West Indies in their first match of the World Cup behind them.

It was a different story from their 105 all out that saw several batsmen succumb to a barrage of bouncers from the West Indies in a seven-wicket defeat at Trent Bridge on Friday.

England recalled fast bowler Mark Wood in what appeared to be a clear bid to expose Pakistan s suppose vulnerability against 90 mph-plus bowling but Morgan did not bring him into the attack until the 10th over.

Morgan, unusually for a one-day international, deployed three slips at the start of the innings for the new-ball pair of Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer.
