Birmingham: England’s B team registered a memorable three-wicket win over Pakistan in the third and final ODI played in Birmingham on Tuesday. Ben Stokes-led England won the last ODI to clean sweep Pakistan 3-0. The hosts won the first ODI by 9 wickets while the second ODI was won by a margin of 52 runs. England captain Ben Stokes has credited all the players for this series win.
Let us inform that Pakistan batted first and scored 331 runs in the allotted 50 overs for the loss of 9 wickets. In reply, England won the match by three wickets with 12 balls to spare. James Vince scored the first century of his international career and was adjudged man of the match for it. Saqib Mahmood was adjudged man of the series.
After the match, Ben Stokes said, “The players put in a great effort throughout the series. Thanks to all the players and coaches who have allowed this to happen so that we can beat Pakistan in the series. Here I would like to say that Eoin Morgan, Chris Silverwood and Trevor Bayliss have guided the team very well in the last six years.
Stokes told the mindset with which England took the field. “Eoin Morgan and we share the same spirit in the team to play fearless cricket, as Phil Salt did in the top order,” he said. The best part was that no one was affected by the situation and performed brilliantly in front of the Edgbaston audience. Whoever was called for this series, he contributed very seriously to the team.
At the same time, James Vince, who became the man of the match, said, ‘We got a quick start so the run rate was never out of control. Lewis Gregory hits a crucial boundary at crucial time. We took our time to settle at the crease. Glad to contribute to the team. Last week I did not expect to get such an opportunity.
Man of the Series Saqib Mahmood said, “It has been a special week. Got the responsibility of the new ball and am happy to be able to fill it. Eoin and Silverwood set the tradition and Stokes carried on this week. I was looking forward to playing in Lancashire last week, but got this opportunity and I am happy with the better performance.
