England have been set a target 261 of by Pakistan🇵🇰 in the first ODI of the 5⃣-match series.
After winning the toss, captain Azhar Ali⭐ led the team from the front and provided stability⚓ to the innings. The pitch wasn't helping the England bowlers a great deal but the quicks bowled consistently👌. Chris Woakes⚡ was impressive with the new ball and was unlucky not to pick more than 1⃣ wicket. Wicketkeeper✋ Safraz Ahmed & youngster Babar Azam scored some quick runs and stepped up the run rate🙌. However, wickets at regular intervals broke the visitors' momentum😖 and the final five overs yielded just 33 runs.
While England bat deep👍, they are up against a talented✨ and experienced bowling attack of Mohammad Amir⚡, Umar Gul & Wahab Riaz.
