Pakistan beat England by 14 runs
Pakistan beat England by 14 runs in the second match of the World Cup at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.
Pakistan shocked England by 14 runs as they ended a long losing streak in one-day internationals despite two centuries for the World Cup host nation.
Joe Root (107) and Jos Buttler (103) were guiding the tournament favourites towards an imposing target of 349 after Pakistan left England needing a World Cup record chase.
The pair put on 130 for the fifth wicket but both were out shortly after reaching their hundreds and the tail had too much to do.
That defeat was their 11th straight loss in completed one-day internationals, including the recent 4-0 series defeat by England.
But they started strongly at Trent Bridge on Monday and made 348 for eight, Mohammad Hafeez top-scoring with 84.
Earlier, Pakistan set 330-run target which was not chased by the England within 50 overs.
Mohammad Hafeez missed out on becoming the first century-maker of the World Cup but a vastly improved batting display from Pakistan saw them make 348 for eight against England.
Hafeez made the most of a reprieve when Jason Roy floored a routine chance at mid-off following a skied drive off Adil Rashid, with the batsman on 14.
With Babar Azam (63) and Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed (55) also making fifties, this was a major turnaround from a Pakistan side who collapsed to 105 all out in a seven-wicket defeat by the West Indies in their World Cup opener at the same ground on Friday.
