England beat Pakistan by three wickets in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) at Trent Bridge on Friday. 

Victory gave World Cup hosts and favourites England an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five-match series. 

England were cruising to a victory target of 341 at 201 for 1 when Jason Roy’s dismissal for 114 sparked a collapse that saw three wickets lost for seven runs in 10 balls. 

But Ben Stokes’s 71 not out saw England home with three balls to spare after Babar Azam made 115 in Pakistan’s 340 for 7. 

The series concludes at Headingley on Sunday.

There were mixed emotions for player of the match Jason Roy, who scored a match-defining ton, but spent most of the previous night at the hospital catering to his ill daughter. 

“It was a very emotional hundred. I didn’t see it coming,” Roy told BBC Radio’s Test Match Special. 

“I had a bit of a rough morning so this one is a special one for me and my family,” added Roy, who returned to hospital after a three-wicket win, although his daughter’s condition is not believed to be serious. 

“It was my little one. We had to take her to hospital at 1:30 in the morning. I stayed there until 8:30am, came back for a couple of hours sleep and got to the ground just before warm-up and cracked on.”

Momentum shift

When England hit 16 runs off Junaid Khan in the 49th over of their chase, their win% went up by 32, which was the highest spike in the entire innings.
