England vs Pakistan, LIVE scorecard: Follow all the latest from the fourth ODI at Trent Bridge
- England host Pakistan again in their latest ODI, a day/night game at Trent Bridge
- Eoin Morgan’s side are also honing their game ahead of Cricket World Cup
- They lead this series 2-0 after two impressive wins and one wash-out
England return to Nottingham three years after posting a then world-record ODI score of 444 for 3 – and there’s a chance they could go even higher against Pakistan in the fourth ODI of this series today.
Eoin Morgan’s impressive side are continuing their World Cup preparations, and look to be in great shape after taking a 2-0 lead in this series after two big wins and one rain-ruined match.
They continue today in a day/night game at one of their favourite grounds, Trent Bridge, where they have a history of big scores and big wins – although captain Morgan is himself suspended for a poor over rate in the last win at Bristol.
And it is not only the batting line-up which looks impressive.
England will unleash one of the fastest new-ball partnerships in their history as they look to close out this 50-over series in style.
Both Jofra Archer and, for the first time this summer, Mark Wood will take the field as England go in search of a 3-0 lead with one to play – and both men are more than capable of breaching 90mph.
After two batsmen-friendly matches in which 1,451 runs have been scored for the loss of just 23 wickets and at a dizzying rate of nearly 7.5 an over, it is a mouth-watering prospect.
Three years ago in Nottingham, Pakistan were blown away by England’s batsmen. This time, it could be the fast bowlers who wreak havoc, and if a menacing message is sent to the eight other teams competing at the World Cup, starting on May 30, so much the better.
Archer has already shaken, rattled and rolled the speed gun this summer, clocking nearly 94mph during the rain-ruined series opener at The Oval in a spell reckoned to be the quickest by an England one-day bowler in a decade.
Wood, meanwhile, will be bowling in a match for the first time since the 50-over series in the Caribbean in March – but with memories still fresh of his lightning performance in the third Test in St Lucia, where he was measured at almost 95mph.
