England v Pakistan 5th ODI – Sunday, May 19th 2019 at 11.00 am

There was a thriller at Trent Bridge on Friday in the fourth match of the series. Pakistan again looked to have posted a solid score in the match after having batted first. However, once again it was England who produced another fine run-chase in the match. However, it was way more of a nail biter than England’s dominant win at Bristol in the third match.

Another successful run chase

England have now successfully completed each of their last 21 run chases on home soil. It has been three successful chases of 340 from them this year. It’s been such fantastic stuff from Eoin Morgan’s men. The 2019 World Cup favourites were back at it on Friday as they hosted Pakistan in the penultimate game of this ODI series. Pakistan opened with 340-7 another reasonable total by the tourists.

They had put more on the board in the third match of the series in Bristol and England just sauntered their way to a match win. It was a little tighter this time around. Jason Roy set the standard for England’s innings, putting 114 on the board as opener. However, his disposal started a bit of a collapse.

Both Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali went for ducks and the game got a little bit tighter towards the final fifteen overs. However, the hosts were steered over the line thanks to a big intervention from all-rounder Ben Stokes who had come in at four. He knocked off 71 runs, staying there until the end to knock off the winning single. It was he and Tom Curran who really set up England for victory, steadying the ship at the end.

Stokes rises to the occasion

The performance from Stokes was brilliant. He needed that as well because he hasn’t been in great form and even his place in the starting eleven at the World Cup was coming into question. That was just the innings that he needed under pressure. So now it’s on to game five on Sunday at Headingly, and it’ll be interesting to see what line up they will go with. They have been changing their lineups in the last couple of matches.

But that is a three-match winning streak in the series now that England are on (the first was no-result). There has been a significant pattern in the last two. Pakistan are capable of posting good scores, but their fielding has been dreadful. England, no matter what line up they are sending out, look capable of catching whatever they are set. This will be England’s last ODI before their opening World Cup match on May 30th, against South Africa.

England remain 15/8 outright favourites to win the Cricket World Cup 2019* (betting odds taken from Unibet on May 17th, 2019 at 9:45 pm)
